Devils at Rangers

New York has a two-game losing streak going and is 4-5-1 in its last 10, as the Pittsburgh Penguins moved within a point of the Eastern Conference leaders with Sidney Crosby back. The Rangers need a win over the Devils to snap out of it. Monday, 7:30 p.m., TSN 2.

Flames at Avalanche

This game is important in the fight for the last two playoff spots in the Western Conference. Colorado was seventh before Sunday's games, while the Flames were three behind them and two behind eighth-place San Jose. Tuesday, 9 p.m., Sportsnet West.

Red Wings at Rangers

This is a tough test for New York, although Detroit has been stumbling lately. The Red Wings have a four-game losing streak and are 3-6-1 in their last 10 games. Wednesday, 7:30 p.m., TSN 2.
