Look who's No. 1? Rangers look to make most of lofty status as East's top seed

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - Henrik Lundqvist got the news when he got to the practice rink.

New York is the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference, one season after sneaking in as the No. 8 seed, and will take on the Ottawa Senators starting Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
