Covers Preview - The New York Rangers look to secure a season-high fourth straight victory when they visit the reeling Calgary Flames on Tuesday. The Rangers began their tour of Western Canada with a resounding 5-1 victory over Vancouver on Saturday before Henrik Lundqvist needed to make only 16 saves for his league high-tying fifth shutout in a 2-0 triumph over Edmonton the following night.
