The Boston Bruins are heading to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Rangers this Wednesday.
Both teams have had strong starts to the 2016 season and are hoping they can build upon their respective standings in the Eastern Conference.
The Rangers will certainly be the fresher team, coming off of two days of rest. The Bruins will play Minnesota at home on Tuesday before going on the road for this game Wednesday.
The Bruins have good on the road so far this year, losing only one of the three they have already played away from Boston.
The offense has been strong during all of those games, but they struggled mightily at home against Montreal on Saturday.
They were only able to get 21 shots off with Dominic Moore and Ryan Spooner scoring.
They will need all the offense they can get with the questions they have in net.
Anton Khudobin got the start against the Canadiens, but he is now hurt and expected to miss the next three weeks. He was starting in place of Tuuka Rask, but Rask is still listed as questionable.
David Backes is out as well, so it looks as though Malcolm Shubban will get the start in their Tuesday game against Minnesota. Rask may be ready to go by Wednesday, but it may depend on how things go in Tuesday’s game.
New York Rangers
The Rangers had been on a consistent “win one, lose one” theme at the beginning of the season but come into this one on a two-game winning streak.
They last defeated Arizona on Sunday night in a game many people expected them to dominate.
They Coyotes put up much more of a fight than was expected, but as is often the case, Henrik Lundqvist would save the day.
Lundqvist is 3-2 on the year with 2.42 GAA so far.
In his career against Boston he is 23-12-2 with a 1.95 GAA and is much better at home.
The Rangers also have a very potent offense that ranks 3rd in the league in scoring with 3.67 goals per game. They are also 8th in shots taken and 9th in power play conversion.

The Bruins will probably have a tough time in this one on very little rest. Particularly with the questions in net, it may be hard to keep the high-powered Ranger offense from scoring.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: New York Rangers
Even if the Bruins offense is able to rebound from their struggles against Montreal, Henrik Lundqvist will probably be the deciding factor in this one. However, is the Bruins are able to get Rask back in time for this game, it may be more interesting than it looks now.
