Rangers look to right ship versus Senators

(TSX / STATS) -- After winning six straight games, the New York Rangers have dropped two in a row. They will look to avoid a third straight loss when they host the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

The Rangers (9-9-2) have allowed 85 shots the past two games in losses to the Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets, a departure from the defensive improvement they showed in their winning streak. Henrik Lundqvist, however, wasn't at fault in the Rangers' 2-0 loss to the Blue Jackets on Friday, as he stopped 40 shots.

The problem was the Rangers played defensively like they did during their 2-6-2 start, allowing too many quality chances and not generating enough of their own.
