After a disheartening loss in Vancouver three nights ago, the Rangers have crossed from British Columbia into Alberta to take on the Edmonton Oilers. With tonight’s contest being the first of a back to back set of games, the Blueshirts will turn to Alexandar Gerogiev in net against Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, and the rest of the Oilers’ high octane offense.
Player to Watch: Ryan Strome
Previously the subject of trade rumors involving Jack Eichel, Strome has to be feeling more secure about his spot on the Rangers now that Eichel has been dealt out of Buffalo. Strome arrived on Broadway via a November 2018 trade with the Oilers in exchange for Ryan Spooner, so tonight will be a bit of a revenge game for the former Oiler. Keep an eye on Strome and see if he plays with a bit more comfort in his game tonight.
Enjoy the game!
