It is time for the Winter classic as the New York Rangers and the Buffalo Sabres meet at Citi Field for the start of the 2018 year. This is going to be a fierce battle as players will now deal with mother nature while on ice.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers are hoping to embrace the New York weather as they need a bounce back game to get back into things in the Metropolitan Division. They have won the past two of four games right now and what better way to start the new year with the Winter Classic?
This will be the second Classic game for the Rangers as their first dance was against the Philadelphia Flyers at Citizens Bank Arena.
New York needs to get their front line back to ways as they have only scored more than two goals in one of the past five games. With the crowd energy expect a fun day for the Rangers.
The Buffalo Sabres are also hoping to start the new year with a bang. They have won two of the past four games including their most recent win against the New Jersey Devils. Buffalo is slowly climbing back into the ACC Atlantic as they started off the regular season with a horrible losing streak.
Don’t expect Buffalo to start this game on fire, but do expect them to hang around for awhile as all of the Winter Classic games have been close. After this game, Buffalo will head on a three game road trip.
