New York Rangers
leading scorer Artemi Panarin (eight goals, 19 points) has hit the scoresheet in nine straight contests and fellow forward Pavel Buchnevich boasts six assists in his past four outings.
Additionally, New York has gotten plenty of production from its young defensemen during its revival as Adam Fox and Tony DeAngelo each have at least a point in five straight contests and six total in that span.
New York F Ryan Strome has one shot in the last three games, but has posted three assists in that stretch.
Alex Georgiev may draw the start tonight. His stats are 4-3-1 W-L | 2.73 GAA | 0.917 SV% | 0 SO
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay got a big boost from its energy line of Yanni Gourde, Cedric Paquette and Patrick Maroon in Sweden as the trio combined for four goals and nine points.
Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman, who was injured in last month’s meeting in New York, had a goal and an assist in his native Sweden last weekend.
Steven Stamkos is 2 goals away from 400 on the year, and has had 3 assists in his last three games.
We believe Andrei Vasilevski will start for the Lightning tonight. His stats are 6-4-0 W-L | 3.01 GAA | 0.905 SV% | 0 SO
