  • Rangers 6 Flyers 4: The bottom line is they got the two points. Yes, they almost threw away a big lead and yes, they made a lot of mental mistakes, but they got the two points. Henrik Lundqvist rebounded nicely from Tuesday’s shellacking, stopping 33-of-37 shots while Jagr netted two and Prucha got his 20th.

    The win leaves the Rangers in the seventh spot with four games left. Their margin for error remains razor-thin with two points separating them from the ninth-place team, Toronto, who visit MSG tonight.

  • Ottawa 5 Islanders 2: At least the Rangers have a margin for error because the Islanders saw theirs disappear Saturday. After watching Mike Dunham go down in flames Friday, the Islanders started Wade Dubielewicz in net. It wasn’t Dubielewicz’s fault they lost as he stopped 42-of-46 shots, but the Islanders couldn’t score and now are 4 points out of a playoff spot with 4 games remaining.
  • Hornets 103 Knicks 94 (OT): And the ship is still sinking for the Knicks, but they are going out with a fight. The night after almost pulling off the big upset in Dallas, the Knicks came close again, getting a three-pointer from Nate Robinson to tie the game near the end of regulation, before falling in overtime. Eddy Curry woke up and scored 34 points to go along with 13 rebounds.
  • New Jersey 86 Philadelphia 82: The Nets continued to solidify their hold on a playoff spot by beating a team they should beat. Vince Carter led the way with 19 points.
