The Rangers may have spent their top spot capital with a loss to stumbling Chicago and a narrow OT win over Columbus, but Tuesday’s 3-0 win in Boston reinforces New York’s ability to beat the other elite teams. In 2012, the Rangers are 7-2-1 against the remainder of this week’s top 10, outscoring them 27-18.

Andy McDonald has goals in three straight games and points in four out of five after missing 51 games due to a concussion. Brian Elliott’s 13-save shutout in a 4-0 win over Minnesota on Saturday was his sixth of the season, tying him with Jonathan Quick and teammate Jaroslav Halak for second in the league behind Henrik Lundqvist’s seven shutouts.

Boston can also put a strong Nash package together and has the cap space to be more creative in a deal. Tuukka Rask would have to be involved in any legitimate trade discussions. The Bruins are 11-10-1 in their last 22 and have been shut out four times in February.

The Devils’ 10 shootout wins are three more than any other team; Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrick Elias scored in the extra session in Wednesday’s win over Anaheim, while Zach Parise has also boasted a strong shootout history. Martin Brodeur (6 GA last 5 GP) is rounding into late-season form.

The Ducks’ 34 points in 2012 is second only to the Red Wings’ 35. Jonas Hiller has been magnificent, going 12-2-4 over 18 straight starts and leading Anaheim to a 4-0-2 record thus far in their season-long eight-game roadtrip. The Ducks are only five points out of the eight spot and nine points out of the division lead with 23 games to play.

Florida’s 144 goals are 17 fewer than the next-lowest division leader (Rangers, 161), while their 162 goals allowed are 18 more than the next-highest division leader (Canucks, 144). Whichever Southeast team that wins the No. 3 seed will be committing [un]armed robbery.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is close to returning from a shoulder injury that has limited him to just two games since Jan. 2. He may see action at home later this week against Philadelphia (Thursday) or Phoenix (Saturday). Edmonton was 0-2-1 in a three-game homestand last week.

“It’s going to take care of itself,” Rick Nash said to reporters prior to Sunday’s overtime loss to the Rangers. “I just worry about today. Right now, I’m a Blue Jacket. That’s all that matters. I played my whole career here. I don’t fall into any of those rumors.”
