07:47 AM ET 12.25 | Seemingly all season, Alain Vigneault has been searching for answers. Perhaps now he has finally found a few. The Rangers' coach recently said he felt there was a lack of chemistry between specific lines or pairs of defensemen. That desperation led to him starting Brad Richards as a third-line winger along with rookie J.T. Miller in the disappointing 5-3 loss to the Islanders Friday night. That experiment didn't work, but now after some more tinkering -- and wins in their last two games -- the Blueshirts finally seem to be coming together for their coach. ... In the last two games, Vigneault has gone with lines of [Carl Hagelin], Miller and Benoit Pouliot; Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan and Rick Nash; Brian Boyle, Dominic Moore, and Derek Dorsett; and the Zuccarello-Richards-Brassard combo. The Rangers still aren't scoring furiously, but at least they seem to be jelling.
