New York Rangers Game Thread: 10/27, Wild at Rangers

This Kuemper kid might be the real deal.

Game Nine, the Minnesota Wild at the Rangers


Wild vs Rangers coverage | NYR roster | Hockey Wilderness

The Rangers are closing out their October hockey and are hoping to finish with a 5-4 record for the month, but that is not going to be an easy task against Zach Parise and the Minnesota Wild. It is not easy to score goals against Minnesota Wild right now and that has a lot to do with Darcy Kuemper being the hottest goalie in hockey. The Rangers are going to have to hope that their power play shows up and that the home ice advantage can help them elevate their game against one of the most dangerous teams of the Western Conference tonight.

Mike's Player to Watch: Mats Zuccarello

It's time for Mats Zuccarello to get a goal and to make a bigger impact on the scoresheet. We know it and he knows it. Zuke had a golden opportunity against Carey Price of the Habs on Saturday night but didn't put the puck where it had to be. Zuke is getting his chances but is just not getting them past the men who wear the extra pads. Look for Zuke to pick up his game and make an impact tonight against the Wild, he certainly has given us plenty of memorable moments on the Garden ice.

Let's go Rangers! Enjoy the game and the thread!
