Too Strong for Weekes!
Rangers 5 Devils 2
Beating the Devils in their own building is always big, even if their future Hall-Of-Fame goaltender is out with an injury (torn biceps muscle). So it was ex-Ranger Kevin Weekes, subbing for Martin Brodeur, who gave up the 4 straight 2nd period goals, including the eventual game winner by Lauri Korpikoski, seen here in exultation:

The Rangers were also down a key man, playing without ex-devil Scott Gomez (undisclosed leg injury?). The other Blueshirt goals were scored by Michal Rozsival, Chris Drury, and 2 for Nikolai Zherdev. There was a mini brawl after the Devils opened the scoring in the 1st period, with Brandon Dubinsky coming to the defense of teammate Dan Girardi. Dubi took a 5 minute major penalty during another brawl at the end of the 2nd. That scrum involved Colton (no relation to Bobby) Orr and Dainus Zubrus receiving misconducts for being very bad.
King Henrik stopped 30 of 32 shots. The boys will play host to the Bruins on Saturday night...
LET'S GO RANGERS!
