Covers Preview - Rick Nash and the surging New York Rangers look to continue their torrid stretch when they vie their 12th win in 13 meetings with the host Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday. Nash scored twice to reach the 20-goal plateau for the 11th consecutive season as New York skated to its season-best fourth straight victory, a 5-2 triumph at Calgary on Tuesday. Nash has collected eight goals and six assists during his career-high 11-game point streak for the Rangers, who have won eight of those contests.
