The Rangers on the other hand have brought their season back after it was on life support and it has to be said that this team looks completely different with Artemi Panarin back in the mix, so they should be confident in their ability to pick up the victory this Saturday.
New Jersey Devils
The New Jersey Devils are on a 2 and 10 run which has really buried them this year, as they were at least respectable in terms of their record about a week ago and all they have been doing recently is improving their chances in the draft.
They can’t feel great coming into this game either, as their last two losses were against this Rangers team and not only did they just lose those games, but they were shut out in those contests.
The New Jersey Devils have struggled mightily to score this year, but they should be happy with the offensive output of center Pavel Zacha and their first overall pick Jack Hughes who now has 9 goals and who appears to be molding into a solid NHL starter.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers might end up on the outside looking in in terms of the playoff race this year, but given the way they have come on as of late I think they, as well as the Rangers fans, have plenty to look forward to next year having such a strong core now in place.
Artemi Panarin or ”breadman” as he is known looks awesome after coming back from some off the ice issues and now has tallied a total of 46 points which seems a bit crazy considering the amount of time he missed.
Igor Shesterkin is the confirmed starter for this game and he looks to be the goalie of the future for the Rangers coming into this contest with a stellar .925 save percentage and a 2.25 goals against average and he looks primed to improve upon those numbers even further against a Devils team he has had a ton of success against in 2021.

Free New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
The New York Rangers are big favorites here, and they deserve to be, as they look to have a very high chance of winning this one, but it is very tough to see this game being a shootout with the Rangers likely giving up only 1 goal.
At the moment we are getting even money on the under and that seems like much better value then just taking the Rangers on the moneyline or puckline, as this should have been one of those times where the total was set at 5.
