Rangers on extended break off best stretch in months

With the New York Rangers playing their best hockey in months as they went into their extended break, veteran goalie Henrik Lundqvist hopes his young teammates don't focus too far ahead when they return.

The Rangers have won four of five to pull within nine points of the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. After beating Boston last Saturday, they are on their bye week heading into this weekend's All-Star break and don't play again until hosting Philadelphia next Tuesday night.

"We can't look at the big picture, `Can we get in, are we still in the race?,'" he said. "We just got to take it week by week and continue to improve."
