Rangers at Devils: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

New York Rangers at New Jersey Devils (-115, 4.5)

THE STORY:
The gloves are off as the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils prepare for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. The visiting Rangers - and head coach John Tortorella in particular - are furious at what they perceive is the Devils' selling of penalty calls to the officials. Tortorella's latest rant notwithstanding, the Rangers come into this one with plenty of momentum after striking for three third-period goals in a 3-0 victory over New Jersey in Game 3.

ABOUT THE RANGERS: When Devils head coach Peter DeBoer criticized Rangers forward Brandon Prust for a hit that left defenseman Anton Volchenkov woozy - referring to it as "head-hunting" - Tortorella came out swinging. He cited two incidents during the game in which he believes the Devils were just as guilty of head-hunting tactics. "I look at (Dainius) Zubrus' elbow to (Anton) Stralman, I look at (Zach) Parise launching himself into (Michael) Del Zotto," Tortorella said. "Maybe if our players stay down on the ice, we'll get something." DeBoer's response to Tortorella's tirade: "Comical."

ABOUT THE DEVILS: Parise was noticeably absent from Game 3's post-game quote sheet. The star sniper was dealing with more than just the loss to the Rangers - he also faced questions about comments his father made before the game. J.P. Parise, a former NHLer who played for Canada in the 1972 Summit Series, suggested that Parise would be a good fit with the Rangers. The younger Parise, an unrestricted free agent this summer, simply didn't want to deal with the media crush he anticipated. "I probably would have said some things I’d regretted," he said. "So … I was just upset about how the game went."

TRENDS:


- Rangers are 11-5 in their last 16 games as a road underdog.
- The under is 10-3-9 in the Rangers' last 22 overall.
- Devils are 8-2 in their last 10 home games.

OVERTIME:

1. New York has four power-play goals against the best penalty-killing unit in the regular season. The Devils are just 1 for 12 with the man advantage.

2. Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist leads all netminders with three postseason shutouts.

3. Parise has 13 goals and 20 assists in 43 career regular-season games against the Rangers.
