NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The New York Rangers appear primed to make
the postseason for the first time since 1997. They face a
playoff-caliber test Tuesday when they skate with the loaded

Philadelphia on Saturday to take over sole possession of first
place in the Atlantic Division.
Petr Sykora scored with 41 seconds left in regulation and
Jaromir Jagr netted the game-winner 84 seconds into overtime for
New York, which is in first place this late in the season for
the first time since April 7, 1996.
