NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers are in agreement that being in first place at the two-day Christmas break doesn't guarantee anything come April.But after three wins in four nights against Atlantic Division foes, the Broadway Blueshirts are more than happy to be on top of the Sheldon Rankins Jersey pack.Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves in his second win over powerful Philadelphia this season, and rookie defenceman Stu Bickel had two more a sists for the Rangers, who beat the Flyers 4-2 on Friday night.Though only 33-of-82 games have been played, the Rangers trail just the defending Stanley Cup champion Manti Teo Jersey Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conferenceand the gap is one point."There is something to be said for that," captain Ryan Callahan said. "We're right there at the top, and that gives us confidence going forward. There's still a lot of hockey to be played, and we haven't seen our best yet."Rangers coach John Tortorella is pleased with his team's performance and how the club responded to this week' Craig Robertson Jersey s challenge by beating New Jersey, the New York Islanders and Philadelphia.As for the significance of being in first place now, Tortorella uttered a terse, "None."Bickel, in his third NHL game, helped set up goals by Derek Stepan and Ruslan Fedotenko in the second period. He has four a sists since being recalled from the AHL, hitting the score sheet in every game. Of the Rangers' seven a sists in the game, six were earned by defencemen."It's been awesome," Bickel said of his brief NHL stint. "It has been a whirlwind since AJ Klein Jersey being called up, but it's nice being able to jump in and kind of play a role right away and contribute a little bit."Marian Gaborik added his league-leading 21st goal early in the third period and Callahan netted a power-play tally for the Rangers (21-8-4), who jumped over the Flyers (21-9-4) in the Atlantic with their fourth straight win.
