|NY RANGERS: LAST SEASON: 34-39-9, 77 points. Eighth in Metropolitan Division.
COACH: David Quinn (first season, first NHL season).
ADDED: D Adam McQuaid, G Marek Mazanec, G Dustin Tokarski, D Fredrik Claesson.
LOST: G Ondrej Pavelec, D Steven Kampfer, C David Desharnis.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Henrik Lundqvist. The veteran goalie, who turns 37 in March, is coming off a 26-26-7 season with a 2.98 goals-against average ' the highest of his career. It was also just the second time he finished with fewer than 30 wins; the other was the lockout-shortened 2012-13, when he was 24-16-3. With a little more than a week to go before the start of the season, the competition for his backup is still undecided between Alexandar Georgiev, Mazanec and Tokarski. Quinn said neither he nor Lundqvist has a target number of games in mind for the veteran.
OUTLOOK: After being perennially expected to compete for the Stanley Cup, the Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time in eight years. The team is rebuilding after dealing several veteran stars in a youth movement at the trade deadline last winter. Quinn was hired from Boston University to lead a youthful team that has some veterans remaining. The Rangers hope to stay healthier after a season in which key players dealt with injuries, including Kevin Shattenkirk, Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad.
|DETROIT: LAST SEASON: 30-39-13, 73 points. Fifth place in Atlantic Division.
COACH: Jeff Blashill (104-105-37, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: F Thomas Vanek, G Jonathan Bernier, F Filip Zadina, assistant
COACH Dan Bylsma.
LOST: F Henrik Zetterberg.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Dylan Larkin. The 22-year-old center was given a $30.5 million, five-year contract to lead the franchise on and off the ice. Larkin led the team with 47 assists and 63 points, surpassing the career highs he set as a rookie two years ago. Without Zetterberg, he will have to do even more this season.
OUTLOOK: The rebuilding Red Wings will likely miss the playoffs for a third straight year, their longest drought since 1979-83. Zetterberg's career-ending back injury was a hit for a franchise that simply can't replace him this season. Larkin, Anthony Mantha and Andreas Athanasiou, all of whom signed multiyear deals last summer, provide some hope as young, talented forwards. Goaltender Jimmy Howard should be able to keep games close, but a shaky defense and lack of quality depth will be tough to overcome.
|Rangers, Red Wings on rolls heading into matchup|
DETROIT -- The New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings are both rebuilding but have played well in their past few games.
Detroit hosts New York Friday night at Little Caesars Arena at 7:30.
The Rangers (7-7-1) have won four straight and the Red Wings (5-8-2) have four victories in their past five games. Also each team won Tuesday night after trailing by two in the second period. New York beat Montreal 5-3 at Madison Square Garden and Detroit defeated Vancouver 3-2 in a shootout at LCA.
The Rangers trailed the Canadiens 3-1 with less than three minutes left in the second, but defenseman Tony De Angelo scored late in the middle period and right winger Pavel Buchnevich, defenseman Neal Pionk and center Mika Zibanejad (short-handed) scored in the third.
"They definitely had the momentum ... we were able to reset going into the third," defenseman Marc Staal said.
That was also New York's second consecutive win after winning twice in California. Because of the time difference, teams usually struggle in their first game or two back from a west coast trip. The Rangers won 3-2 in a shootout in Anaheim last Thursday night.
"I love how we responded coming back from the trip and we win two hockey games here," Rangers coach David Quinn said. "It says a lot."
Said Staal: "We're on a bit of a roll. With wins comes confidence, finishing games."
The Red Wings trailed the Canucks 2-0 in the second period on Tuesday night. Forward Justin Abdelkader's power-play goal in the second made it 2-1 and Gustav Nyquist's tied it early in the third period. Center Dylan Larkin scored the only goal of the shootout.
"I think part of resilient is guys stepping and making plays at big moments," Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. "And for a goaltender, it's just making a whole bunch of saves and I thought Howie (goalie Jimmy Howard) was a big difference that way."
Howard made 40 saves against Vancouver and stopped all three shooters in the shootout.
The Red Wings seem like a totally different team than the one that began the season 1-7-2.
"Well ... we're bending not breaking I guess," Howard said. "Early in the season when stuff started to go wrong the body language was off and things really exploded on us and now guys are continuing to keep working."
Detroit is expected to get two forwards back from injury on Friday. Andreas Athanasiou (leg) and center Frans Nielsen (concussion) are expected to return after they each missed four games.
Larkin practiced Thursday after missing practice on Wednesday to recover from a minor injury suffered late in Tuesday night's game. He will Friday night.
It will be the second NHL game this season for Rangers center Lias Andersson, the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. Andersson was recalled from Hartford for the game Tuesday against Montreal and played 12:17 on a line between Jimmy Vesey and Jesper Fast.
New York assigned forward Boo Nieves to Hartford of the American Hockey League on Thursday.
