NEW YORK (AP) _ The New York Rangers fired coach Ron Low on Monday after two seasons without making the playoffs.

The Rangers went 36-38-4-3 this season and finished 11th in the Eastern Conference, missing the postseason for the fifth straight year overall.

``I feel a change is necessary at the head coaching position,'' Rangers general manager Glen Sather said. ``An extensive, thorough search for a new head coach will begin immediately.''
