The Devils are 5-23 in their last 28 Tuesday games. The Rangers are 3-8 in their last 11 home games and 4-13 in their last 17 overall. The over is 4-1 in Devils last 5 road games. The under is 14-3 in Rangers last 17 overall. The Devils are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in New York. The home team is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings.
The New Jersey Devils weren't playing well the last time we saw them, and now they're playing fo the first time in two weeks. It's hard to get a proper read on a team that's had such a long layoff and it's only fair to expect some rust / sluggish play. The New York Rangers have had their issues as well, but at least they have consistent games under their belt and are more in a rhythm. At home, the Rangers should get the job done here.
