POST-GAME NOTES
\r\nRangers 2, Florida 3 (SO)

NYR AT
The Rangers' bid for a two-game sweep of their Florida road trip and a six-game overall road winning streak came up just short on Friday night, as they fell 3-2 in a shootout at Florida. Chris Drury scored twice for the Rangers, and backup goaltender Stephen Valiquette made 33 saves to deliver a point for the Blueshirts, who retained a two-point lead in the Atlantic Division.

NOTES
