The New York Rangers have known for a while they won’t make the playoffs. They made it official that the Carolina Hurricanes won’t Delano Hill Jersey , either.

Ryan Sproul scored and Kevin Hayes added a short-handed goal, and the Rangers beat the Hurricanes 2-1 on Saturday night to eliminate them from the playoff race.

Henrik Lundqvist made 40 saves for New York, which entered having lost three straight and six of seven – going 1-4-2 in that stretch – and was formally knocked out of the postseason chase earlier in the week.

”Especially when you’re officially eliminated, you want to end on a good note,” alternate captain Mika Zibanejad said. ”You want to be able to get something out of it, and it’s just easy to lay down and just not care, but that’s not how we are as individuals in here.”

Jeff Skinner scored and Cam Ward made 18 saves for the Hurricanes, who will miss the playoffs for the ninth straight year – the longest active postseason drought in the NHL. For the third consecutive season, their official elimination came in their 79th game.

”I think we’ve known for a while, obviously Johnny Townsend Jersey , so officially, unofficially, we’ve still got to be ready to work and be a pro and show up and win games and play well for our fans,” co-captain Jordan Staal said.

Lundqvist’s third victory against Carolina this season helped the Rangers finish off a sweep in the series. New York won the first three games by a combined 17-5, but this was Ward’s first start of the season against them. Carolina’s previous three losses came with Scott Darling in net.

Skinner’s goal with 11:53 remaining made it a one-goal game, but the Rangers locked down after that, ending the game by killing a slashing penalty to Hayes over the final 74 seconds.

”You’ve just got to stick to your system,” defenseman Brady Skjei said. ”We felt confident that we could kill it off, and when it comes down to 6-on-4, you’ve got to keep it compact and just try to keep pucks to the outside. That was kind of our mindset Ben Gedeon Jersey , and a few good sticks by our guys and that clear at the end by (Mats Zuccarello) was huge.”

Sproul scored first with 16:59 left in the second period. After Paul Carey dug the puck out of the corner, he found Sproul skating unimpeded between the circles and he ripped it past Ward for his first goal.

Then, with Zibanejad in the penalty box for tripping, Jesper Fast led a rush and threaded a pass to Hayes for a short-handed goal with 6:37 left in the second. That put the Rangers – who entered 21-0-1 when leading after two periods – up 2-0 after 40 minutes.

”The shorty’s the game-winner, right?” Carolina coach Bill Peters asked rhetorically. ”That’s the difference in the hockey game.”

NOTES: Sproul’s goal left D Rob O’Gara as the only Rangers skater in the lineup without at least one goal on the season. … Carolina C Derek Ryan, who assisted on Skinner’s goal, has points in four straight games.

More NHL hockey: The Rockets have reason to feel good, tied with Golden State after winning Game 2 in a rout in the Western Conference finals.

But a big challenge awaits Sunday at Oracle Arena, where the Warriors have won an NBA-record tying 15 straight playoff games.

Houston coach Mike D’Antoni knows all about Golden State’s success in Oakland, but thinks it has less to do with being at home than the fact that the Warriors are a great team.

”The challenge is you’re playing Golden State. That’s why they’ve won 15 in a row. Not because of the building Jim Plunkett Jersey , but because they’re good,” he said. ”All these players are used to playing in hostile environments … it helps a little bit (but) sometimes you feed off the energy also from the other crowd. So you try to take them out as soon as you can and take out the crowd.”

The Rockets aren’t daunted by Golden State’s winning streak there and are looking forward to the challenge.

”It’s definitely a great place to play,” Trevor Ariza said. ”Their fans are great. They bring a lot of energy to the game. At this point there’s nothing like playing in that type of environment and trying to silence them.”

Ariza was one of the keys to Houston’s 127-105 win in Game 2 that helped erase the memory of Houston’s tough home loss in the series opener. Ariza had 19 points as one of five Rockets who scored more than 16 points to rebound after an ineffective performance in Game 1 because of foul trouble.

While the Rockets know what happened in Game 2 won’t matter if they don’t take care of business on Sunday night, they do believe it gives them a bit of momentum.

”Yeah, just because we know we’re more than capable of it,” James Harden said. ”We’ve just got to go out there and do it every possession.”

Houston’s 127 points were the most the team has scored this postseason. But they’re quick to point out that their success on offense was the product of solid defense. That, they say, is the reason it won’t be difficult to recreate what they did in Game 2 on Sunday night.

”It wasn’t anything special that we did,” Harden said. ”We just created more opportunities with our defense.”

Sunday will be just Houston’s second game at Golden State this season and first since the Rockets got a 122-121 win on Oct. 17 in the opener for both teams on the night the Warriors received their championship rings.

”A lot has been going on since then,” Harden said. ”But as long as we take those same principles and that mindset that we have Riley Dixon Jersey , no matter where we play, we’ll be pretty good.”

Kevin Durant has scored 75 points combined in the first two games to lead the Warriors, but Stephen Curry hasn’t really gotten going yet as he rounds into form after missing almost two months with a knee injury. The Rockets know the 2015 and 2016 Most Valuable Player is capable of having a huge game at any time and they must account for him at all times, just as they do with Durant and Klay Thompson.

”I just think everybody on their team can shoot,” Ariza said. ”When they’re in a scoring position, you just have to give some sort of resistance. Try to make them think about doing other things.”

The Warriors have much more experience at this level of the postseason with this being their franchise-record fourth straight trip to the conference finals. But Houston has plenty of veteran leadership led by nine-time All-Star Chris Paul, who said it’s easy to look forward regardless of how the last game went.

”It feels like Game 2 was a week ago now,” he said. ”That’s how it is in the playoffs … we’ve done a great job all year staying even-keeled. We tried not to get too high or too low.”
