Bet on Devils vs. Rangers

The Rangers are in need and perhaps due for a strong performance. With the back-to-back, Ondrej Pavelec might be in goal. He allowed three goals on 24 shots in a relief effort October 7 at Toronto. Look for a strong offensive effort against what could be New Jersey's backup goaltender, Keith Kinkaid. It will be his first start of the season after posting a 2.64 GAA last year. We like the Rangers by multiple goals here.
