At least the post-game press conference won't feature a dejected Martin Brodeur complaining about the ice conditions. Nonetheless, the outdoors call to Broadway one more time.

As the New York Rangers prepare to head back to the Bronx, they must be reminded at more is at stake other than bragging rights.

Currently, the Rangers sit a tight second in the Metropolitan Division with 59 points. Right behind are the Philadelphia Flyers with 58, but of greater concern are the surging New York Islanders who have climbed back into the race with 50 points.

The last time the Rangers and Islanders met, the Islanders embarassed the lackluster Blueshirts on home ice.Tonight, the Rangers seek revenge and more importantly another two points of separation in the standings.

With second and last place in the division separated by a mere nine points, each divisional game becomes more and more critical. 

Over the last 10 games, the Rangers are 7 - 3 - 0. The Islanders are 5 - 4 - 1 over the same time.

In the back of both team's minds should also be Friday's match-up in a return to MSG. Can the Rangers rebound behind a reinvigorated Henrik Lundqvist? Or will the red-hot tandem of Tomas Vanek and John Tavares continue and pick apart the Rangers defense.
