New York keeps climbing in Metro Division

New York keeps climbing in Eastern Conference

One week ago, the Rangers notched a 5-0 shutout of the Devils. Will this evening’s rematch in the Empire State take on a similar tenor?

The two Eastern Conference rivals drop the puck at 7:30 p.m. ET. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives New York odds of -190 to take care of business at home. Conversely, New Jersey enters Madison Square Garden as a +165 underdog.

Despite a stern test from Nashville last night, the Blueshirts continued their hot play. Rick Nash & Co. secured a 2-1 shootout victory to improve to 6-3-0 in December. The power forward also potted his sixth goal since Nov. 21.

Things aren’t going so swimmingly for John Hynes’ troops. They’re currently riding a five-game losing streak following yesterday’s 3-1 setback in Ottawa. However, No. 1 netminder Cory Schneider figures to be back between the pipes in a few hours.

The Rangers boast a 19-3-1 record when allowing fewer than three tallies in 2016-17. Needless to say, we can’t imagine the reeling Devils pushing more than a puck or two past Henrik Lundqvist. Bank on the visitors falling to 4-12-4 away from the Prudential Center.
