Game #21: New York Rangers vs New Jersey Devils Open Thread
After earning two points from Tuesday night’s Battle of the Bottom Feeders. the Rangers are back in action to star in Battle of the Bottom Feeders II: Electric Boogaloo. The Blueshirts are heading across the Hudson to take on the New Jersey Devils in their first visit of the season to the Prudential Center.
These two teams have already squared off twice at Madison Square Garden, and Lindy Ruff’s Devils earned victories by margins of 4-3 and 5-2 in those contests. Now, the Rangers have a pair of games tonight and Saturday in New Jersey to even the season series. The Devils will be without their captain, Nico Hischier, for both games after being diagnosed with a sinus fracture.
Player to Watch: Adam Fox
While the Bueshirts didn’t put forth their best effort on Tuesday night, they did come away with two points in the standings. Only two players recorded multiple points in the box score, and Adam Fox was one of them. As the team continues to navigate the absence of Jacob Trouba, look for Fox to be active throughout tonight’s contest.
Enjoy the game!
