The New York Rangers are on the hunt for two big points tonight as they take on the last placed Florida Panthers at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are still clinging to the eighth playoff spot, but have the Winnipeg Jets, and Buffalo Sabres closing in pretty quickly. This is an absolute must win game for the Rangers tonight. Brian Boyle will be out of the lineup tonight with a lower-body injury, and will be replaced by Chris Kreider.

Player To Watch:


Chris Kreider

This is the obvious choice tonight, as we see what the second conditioning stint has done for Chris Kreider. This will be his third go-around with the Rangers this season, and hopefully it goes differently than the previous two attempts.
