The New York Rangers were able to snag a point away from the New Jersey Devils last night, but will leap right back into action tonight against the Washington Capitals. Aside from losing the game, the Rangers received some bad news as Marc Staal left the game with an apparent concussion. It's assumed that he will sit out tonight's game, which means Michael Del Zotto will likely slot back in to play with Justin Falk. Henrik Lundqvist will start for the Rangers once again tonight, as Vigneault confirmed after last night's game.

Player To Watch:

Chris Kreider

#20 / Left Wing / New York Rangers



Apr 30, 1991

Chris Kreider scored the tying goal last night with 21 seconds remaining, and has been on an absolute tear as of late. He's tied for second in rookie scoring, and he continues to get better every game. I can see another big game from him tonight.
