The New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils meet Thursday in NHL action at the Prudential Center.
The New York Rangers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The New York Rangers are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with 10 goals, Artemi Panarin has 13 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 57 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 85.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Igor Shesterkin has given up 30 goals on 360 shots faced and Alexandar Georgiev has given up 21 goals on 225 shots.
The New Jersey Devils need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Miles Wood leads New Jersey with seven goals, TY Smith has nine assists and Jack Hughes has 49 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 63 percent of their opponents power plays. Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 26 goals on 324 shots faced and Scott Wedgewood has allowed 14 goals on 141 shots.
The Rangers are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 8-1 in their last 9 Thursday games. The Devils are 0-7 in their last 7 home games and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The under is 18-6 in Rangers last 24 overall. The under is 5-1 in Devils last 6 home games. The Rangers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in New Jersey and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I'm no eager to back either of these teams right now and the matchup feels a bit like a wash on paper. However, the New Jersey Devils are at home and have won both meetings against the Rangers this season. The Devils have also won five of the last seven meetings against the Rangers overall. Toss up contest, but I have to give the Devils the edge on their home ice.
