After a disappointing 1-0 loss to the Dallas Stars at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, the Rangers will look to turn their luck around tonight against the St. Louis Blues in the teams' only meeting of the year. The Rangers currently sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a 17-7-4 record, which equates to 38 points. While that stands out above many teams within their conference, it is slightly deceiving, at least as of late, because the Blueshirts have not been themselves. They will look to change that tonight on the road.

The Blues, meanwhile, are sixth in the Western Conference with a 17-9-3 record. They are currently on a three-game winning streak, heavily due in part to the play of Brian Elliot in-between the pipes. Elliot leads the league with a 1.46 goals-against-average and has pitched four shutouts as well. For the Rangers, a team that struggled to score against a rookie netminder on Tuesday, this will not be pleasant music to their ears.

Speed may very well be a weapon the Rangers use to defeat the Blues tonight, so in that case, Carl Hagelin is my player to watch for the Blueshirts in this match-up.
