Coming off a 2-1 victory over Toronto, the Rangers head to New Jersey to take on the Devils in one of the NHL’s most long-standing rivalries.
The Devils, coming off two straight losses, will battle a very tough offense at home and will look to get a much-needed win over New York.
New York Rangers
The Rangers continue to be one of the best teams both offensively and defensively in the league. New York has 200 total goals on the season, 2nd in the NHL, and have a lot of forwards that can score the puck.
Defensively, the Rangers have been solid alos. The team ranks 7th in the league in goals against this season, giving up just 156 in 60 games.
Right wing Michael Grabner has taken on a lot of the goal-scoring duties this season. He has 26 goals along with 10 assists. However, he’s been in a slump recently and doesn’t have a single point over the last five games.
The good thing for the Rangers is they can get scoring from so many skaters. Right wing Rick Nash has 17 goals and 13 assists this season, including a goal and two assists over his last five games.
New Jersey Devils
Almost exactly the opposite in terms of offense, the Devils are the 2nd worst in goals scored this season in the NHL. With just 139 goals in 60 games, the Devils don’t have a lot of depth on offense and have trouble scoring the puck.
The defense leaves a lot to be desired as well and the Devils rank 19th in the league in goals against, giving up almost three per game.
The team’s best scorer this season has been right wing Kyle Pamieri. He has 16 goals and 20 assists this season. In his last five games, he has two goals and two assists.
This offseason’s acquisition Taylor Hall has been an important piece for the Devils. The left winger has 14 goals and 26 assists this year, including a goal and three assists in his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- New York is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 games on the road
- New Jersey is 2-4 SU in the last six games
