Rangers' home slide continues with loss to Preds

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - In the midst of their longest homestand in franchise history, the New York Rangers likely can't wait to hit the road again.

Behind a goal and two assists from Paul Gaustad and a 28-save effort from Carter Hutton, the Nashville Predators dealt the Rangers their fourth straight loss at Madison Square Garden via a 4-1 decision.

Rich Clune and Matt Hendricks each scored once and assisted on another to help the Predators halt a season-high five-game skid, with David Legwand contributing a pair of helpers to the victory.

The Rangers fell to 0-2-1 on their nine-game residency and now have their longest home losing streak since a four-game slide from Feb. 20-Mar. 3, 2011.

Rick Nash accounted for the lone New York goal, while Henrik Lundqvist stopped 22-of-25 shots on the evening.
