Rebuilding Rangers eye modest goals, not deep playoff run

NEW YORK (AP) Fully into rebuilding, the New York Rangers aren't thinking about a deep playoff run. They simply want to get better.

The Rangers are coming off a year in which they dealt several stars at the trade deadline, finished last in the Metropolitan Division and missed the postseason for the first time in eight years.

They made a coaching change after the season, hiring David Quinn from Boston University to lead a younger team that has some veterans. Quinn, a Colorado Avalanche assistant in the lockout-shortened 2013 season who also coached in the AHL, is implementing a more up-tempo game.
