ESPN has ranked the Rangers #5, up from #12, in their most recent power rankings...
5. Rangers - Big wins over Washington and Anaheim give the Rangers four straight wins. Nice starts for rookie defensemen Matt Gilroy and Michael Del Zotto. Marian Gaborik's clicking, too, with points in every game. Sean Avery's return is a welcome addition.
...make that five straight wins.
...its amazing how everyone jumps right on the bandwagon after a few weeks. I mean these guys had the Rangers ranked #22 to start the season.
The Hockey News has the Rangers at #6, up from #17!!! last week.
