It's an early evening game in Newark today for the Rangers against a Devils' team that is headed in the wrong direction. The Rangers will again be without Kevin Klein who (according to Steve Zipay) will be out of the lineup until at least Monday with back spasms.
Defenseman Adam Clendening will be skating in his 23rd game as a Ranger tonight. He has eight points thus far this season.
The Rangers will start goaltender Antti Raanta tonight. Henrik Lundqvist will start in tomorrow's game.
Things to look out for: New York center Mika Zibanejad hasn't scored a goal since he potted two on January 17th in his first game back after breaking his leg. Miller's next goal will be his 20th on the season.
