Rest assured, it will not be like this tomorrow night in Pittsburgh.

Because Wednesday night in the Garden there was as rosy a hue as could be imagined engulfing a once-dormant Rangers team, as new trade additions ran amok and led the way to a 6-1 win over the first-place Penguins.

Showing up 15 minutes before warm-ups were two of the three pieces returned from Columbus in exchange for Marian Gaborik at yesterday’s trade deadline, center Derick Brassard and defenseman John Moore combining for two goals and three assists. And Ryane Clowe, who slept 30 minutes on a red-eye flight Tuesday night after being obtained for draft picks in a trade with the Sharks, adding his first two goals of the season as well as an assist.

“Throws coaching right out the window, huh?” John Tortorella sniped.

Turns out, it’s not just the sleepless that benefit from trades like this, either. The struggling Brian Boyle managed to get his second goal of the season and add three assists, while Brad Richards also seemed to gain some life and add another two helpers.

All in all, the 18-15-3 Rangers are now tied with both the Islanders and Devils in points, but leapfrogged both and into seventh place in the conference by virtue of more wins than the Devils and one game in hand over the Islanders.

“Just to have a couple new faces in the room, it changes the dynamic in here,” said goalie Henrik Lundqvist, solid in making 26 saves. “On the ice is one thing, but off the ice, it’s going to change too. So hopefully this can help us.”

It will start tomorrow, when they head to Pittsburgh to finish this home-and-home with the Penguins (28-10-0), who played without Sidney Crosby, still nursing a broken upper jaw. The Pens were the ones who had taken all of the early trade-deadline headlines, but they were the ones that came out flat in the second game of a back-to-back and were wiped out by a Rangers team that now looks a lot more like the one that was two wins from the Stanley Cup finals last season.

“We were definitely more in-your-face type of team today,” Lundqivst said. “We didn’t give them a lot of room. A lot of great things.”
