Preview: Kings at Rangers

The Rangers’ current surge, which includes a shutout victory over red-hot Pittsburgh on Wednesday, has helped them maintain second place in the Metropolitan Division as they begin a three-game homestand. Los Angeles kicked off its season-high seven-game trek Tuesday by routing Boston for its third straight road win, but fell to the New York Islanders two nights later. The Kings, who entered Thursday with a seven-point lead in the Pacific, are hoping Jonathan Quick can make a rapid recovery after missing the 5-2 loss to the Islanders with a lower-body injury. The Rangers and Kings split their two-game series last season, with each team emerging victorious on the road.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7 p.m. ET, NHL Network, FSN West (Los Angeles), MSG (New York)
