(SportsNetwork.com) - The surging New York Rangers take aim at a fourth consecutive victory on Monday, as they host the Anaheim Ducks in an interconference battle at Madison Square Garden. Rangers captain Ryan Callahan is expected to return from a broken thumb for the home side. The Rangers went 3-6-0 on a season-opening nine game road trip, but things have been looking up for the Blueshirts since playing their home opener on Oct. 28 against Montreal. Although New York dropped a 2-0 decision to the Habs in that contest, the Rangers have since won three in a row and recorded their two most recent victories on home ice. New York hasnt won four in a row since a four-game winning streak from Feb. 28-March 7 of last season. After notching a 3-2 road win against the rival New York Islanders on Tuesday, the Blueshirts opened a four-game homestand with Thursdays 2-0 triumph against Buffalo. The Rangers then recorded their most lopsided win of the season Saturday against Carolina, scoring a season-high five goals in the 5-1 rout of the visiting Hurricanes. Derek Stepan broke out of a scoring drought by netting his first three goals of the season to lead the way in Saturdays blowout win over the Canes. Carl Hagelin added a pair of goals to support Stepans second career hat trick, while Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 27-of-28 shots in the victory. Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello each recorded three assists in the rout. "We didnt have the start we wanted but we battled back and (Lundqvist) kept us in the game," said Hagelin. "All the lines started going and we got our chances." Hagelin has two goals and one assist in three games since returning from offseason shoulder surgery. However, the Rangers are still playing without key forward Rick Nash (concussion). Meanwhile, Nash remains sidelined indefinitely with a head injury suffered in the third game of the season. The Ducks are capping their longest road trip of the season on Monday and have recorded a solid 4-2-1 record on the swing so far. Anaheim began the trek with consecutive regulation setbacks in Toronto and Montreal, but has righted itself with a 4-0-1 mark in the past five outings. Bruce Boudreaus club improved to 6-3-1 as the visiting team this season after Saturdays 6-3 decision in Buffalo. Corey Perry and Emerson Etem scored two goals apiece and Ryan Getzlaf added a goal and two assists to help the Ducks down the lowly Sabres. Sami Vatanen also scored for the Ducks and Jonas Hiller only needed to make 14 saves to earn the win. Down 1-0, Anaheim scored three consecutive goals before the end of the second period to make it 3-1. The Ducks pushed their edge to 5-1 in the early stages of the third period and cruised to the victory from there. "It took us about a period to get going. Its frustrating," said Getzlaf. "Obviously I am happy with our effort after that first period to get back into the hockey game. We had a will to win." After closing its lengthy trip on Monday, the Ducks will play their next three games on home ice, beginning with Wednesdays tilt against Phoenix. Anaheim is a perfect 5-0 as the host this season, including a 6-0 win over New York on Oct. 10. Hiller made 34 saves to lift the Ducks to their third victory in four games versus the Rangers. Anaheim, though, has lost its past three trips to Madison Square Garden. Caleb Swanigan Jersey . 1 Pete Sampras.

The September card features a marquee main event rematch between light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones and Swedens Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson. Jones, currently rated the UFCs top pound-for-pound fighter, won a hard-fought decision the first time they met at UFC 159 last September in Toronto. UFC president Dana White said there were talks with Toronto, Las Vegas, Sweden and several other U.S. cities about holding the Jones-Gustafsson card. White said the decision to go to Vegas was a business decision. "Its a massive fight," White told The Canadian Press on Friday after the UFC 175 weigh-in. "Lets just say Vegas made a lot of sense," he added. "When you have big fights, there are some cities that want big fights worse than other cities do. And Im not saying thats the case with Toronto but Vegas really wanted this fight." He said he could not announce the exact venue because the deal was not done yet. The UFC usually holds fights at the MGM Grand or Mandalay Bay. While the venues in Vegas are smaller than the Air Canada or Bell Centre, they can charge higher prices. Casinos also welcome the show for the business they bring in. Asked if the UFC 178 venue wouldd be one of the normal Vegas venues, White said: "Should be, yeah.dddddddddddd" In January, the UFC announced plans to hold five shows in Canada in 2014: Halifax, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Vancouver. Vancouver and Quebec City have taken place and a UFC spokesman said the planned Oct. 4 televised Fight Night card at the Halifax Metro Centre is still a go. Tom Wright, managing director for UFC operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, said the Toronto show will be pushed back to 2015. As for the planned Dec. 6 show at Montreals Bell Centre, Wright said the UFC had dates reserved for both December and March and should have a decision in several weeks on which it will choose. Wright attributed the changes to the need for fluidity in the fight game. Asked what his message was to Canadian fans in the wake of the schedule upheaval, White said: "Love you guys. I love Canada. I probably couldnt say it enough. But Vegas really wanted this one bad." The five Canadians shows originally announced for 2014 were up from three in recent years when Toronto and Montreal were constants on the schedule with another city rotating in. The UFC has held 15 pay-per-view shows to date in Canada: six in Montreal, four in Toronto, three in Vancouver and one in each of Calgary and Winnipeg. The Quebec City card was a televised show.
