About the Rangers • It has been 157 days between Blues-Rangers matchups. On Oct. 10 in Madison Square Garden — the fourth game of the season for St. Louis — the Blues posted a 3-1 victory behind goals by Jaden Schwartz, Brayden Schenn and Carl Gunnarsson. Mika Zibanejad, who has career highs for goals (22) and power play goals (11) this season, scored for the New Yorkers.

The Rangers (32-32-7) were big-time sellers at the trade deadline, shipping out mainstays Rick Nash (Boston), Ryan McDonagh (Tampa Bay) and Michael Grabner (New Jersey), among others. Even so, since the Feb. 26 deadline, the Rangers are 5-2-1, scoring 28 goals in those eight games.
