Game Preview: Rangers vs. Devils
The Rangers are at home tonight to take on the New Jersey Devils. The puck drops at 7pm and can be seen locally on MSG.
Ummm, so how about that 7 game winning streak? That was nice, right? Well it’s over now, and the one good thing we can take out of that shitshow against the Sharks is that at least we know that this team doesn’t do anything half-way, including lose. They win big, they lose big. Yeah, let’s stick with that.
Anyway, our boys play the Devils tonight, and that should serve to light a fire under their asses to come back and get a win. Plus, Lundy is back in net, facing off against Marty Brodeur. Our boy Hank is 15-2-4. A stat that makes us here at 5-hole feel all tingly.
This is going up incredibly late, so let’s just get to the Numbers Breakdown already.
Devils record: 4-3-0 – 4-3-0 in their last 10 - 3-0-0 on the road
Rangers record: 7-2-0 – 7-2-0 in their last 10 - 4-1-0 at home
