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

New York Rangers at New Jersey Devils (-120, 4.5)

THE STORY:
The New Jersey Devils couldn't have imagined at the outset of the playoffs that they would play a home game for the chance to advance to their first Stanley Cup finals in nearly a decade. And yet, that's where the Devils find themselves as they prepare to host the New York Rangers in Game 6. New Jersey put itself in position to represent the East in the finals with a hard-fought 5-3 win in Game 5, improving to 7-0 when leading after two periods so far in the postseason.

ABOUT THE RANGERS: Ryan Callahan isn't making any promises. The New York Rangers captain knows all about the guarantee Mark Messier made shortly before Game 6 of the 1994 Eastern Conference finals. Messier, the Rangers' captain at the time, vowed his club would beat the Devils - then went out and had a hat trick as New York won the game 4-2 and went on to capture its first Stanley Cup title in 54 years. When asked if he planned to make his own prediction, Callahan said simply: "No." Teammate Brad Richards went into more detail. "No disrespect to history but we're worried about our own team," he said.

ABOUT THE DEVILS: The only member of either team to appear in the 1994 series: New Jersey netminder Martin Brodeur, who let a 2-0 lead slip away in that infamous sixth game after allowing a soft goal to Alexei Kovalev that set the stage for Messier's heroics. Now 40, Brodeur is doing a good job of keeping things in perspective. "This situation is what creates history," he said. "Whatever happens in the next few days is what this rivalry is all about." Brodeur made 25 saves in the Game 5 victory, outdueling Rangers counterpart Henrik Lundqvist for his 110th career postseason victory.

TRENDS:

- Rangers are 3-9 in their last 12 playoff games as an underdog.
- Devils are 5-1 in their last six home games.
- The under is 9-3-9 in the Rangers' last 21 overall.

OVERTIME:

1. The Rangers are 5-2 in games following a loss so far this postseason.

2. Lundqvist has allowed seven goals over a two-game span - something that happened just five times in the regular season.

3. Devils F Zach Parise has three goals and two assists in the past two games after registering just one helper in his previous five contests.
