Complete Coverage >


The New York Rangers will be in search of their first win streak this season as they head into Newark, NJ tonight to take on the New Jersey Devils. The Rangers were dealt yet another bad hand yesterday as Ryan Callahan will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a broken thumb, which he suffered in the final two minutes in their 2-0 win over the Washington Capitals.

As for the Devils, they don't have the healthiest of lineups heading into this game, as they will be without Ryane Clowe, Patrik Elias, Adam Larsson, and potentially Damien Brunner tonight. Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start in net for the Rangers, while Cory Schneider will be in between the pipes at the other end.

Player To Watch:


Brad Richards

#19 / Left Wing / New York Rangers

6-0

Brad Richards has been the most consistent player throughout the lineup thus far, and he'll have to step up with guys like Rick Nash, Carl Hagelin, and Ryan Callahan being absent. If he can continue to play the way he has up until this point, he'll be good.
