UNIONDALE, N.Y. — For one night, the New York Rangers‘ roster shake up worked.

Playing without benched veterans Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik, the Rangers responded to coach John Tortorella’s heavy hand and broke out of their offensive woes.

Ryan Callahan had two goals and two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to lift the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Islanders on Thursday night that snapped a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) and gave them a split of the home-and-home series.

Home, not so sweet home-Rangers drop 3 in a row at the Garden

Rangers are 4-9-1 in their last 14 games

The Rangers entered last nights game against the Florida Panthers with a 4-8-1 record in their last 13 games.  With Florida playing 3 games in 4 nights, one would think that this is the perfect time to rout the ship, but the truth of the matter is that the Rangers just are not very good.
