The Rangers surely will enjoy the respite a win brings from all the losses, injuries and poor play over the last month, a moment they can finally enjoy even knowing the organization is about to shake up the roster.

A day after management formally announced its plan to build for the future and not try to save this season, the Rangers scored twice in the third period Friday to win 4-3 in front of a Garden crowd still firmly behind its team.

Rick Nash tied the game at 6:41 of the second and Mika Zibanejad's power-play goal put the Rangers ahead at 12:41. The Rangers survived a 6-on-4 situation for the final 1:32 of the game.

But their injury issues got worse. Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec left after the first period with a knee injury.

Henrik Lundqvist came in and allowed two goals on 21 shots in the second period. The Rangers will need to call a goalie up from Hartford if Pavelec isn't healthy enough to dress on their upcoming trip to Winnipeg and Minnesota.

This came after Alain Vigneault said before the game that Ryan McDonagh was out with an upper-body issue which had been lingering for the last two weeks.
