Game #64: New Jersey Devils vs New York Rangers Open Thread

The Blueshirts are back in action following Saturday’s victory over the St. Louis Blues. The second game following the trade deadline will come against the New Jersey Devils, and Peter Laviolette’s squad will look to earn its third win in as many games and wrap up the season series against its Hudson River rival.

The Devils and Rangers have already played twice at the Prudential Center in Newark, where the best hockey that arena has seen this year took place last Monday during the NJSIAA state finals games. Madison Square Garden will be the scene for the final two meetings of the season as the Rangers continue their march towards the playoffs, and the Devils continue their match towards the golf course for the early summers they usually enjoy.

Player to Watch: Jack Roslovic

Roslovic was acquired in the final minutes prior to Friday’s 3:00 PM trade deadline, and he made his Broadway debut skating alongside Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad. Although Roslovic didn’t find the score sheet in his first game, he was noticeable on the ice and is set to become the latest candidate to play alongside New York’s two longest tenured players. Keep an eye on Roslovic as he continues his adjustment to the Rangers and looks to cement himself on the top line.

Enjoy the game!
