The Line: New Jersey Devils / New York Rangers --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Right when things appeared to be getting better for the New York Rangers they suffer another injury blow. Captain Ryan Callahan suffered a broken thumb in Wednesday night's 2-0 victory over the Washington Capitals. Callahan suffered the injury blocking a shot in the final two minutes. It was the best performance of the year for New York who used a dominant second period to assert themselves and Henrik Lundqvist did the rest. Now they need to find a way to replace their captain for a month, the guy who was one of their main catalysts on Wednesday. The good news is that the Devils have been awful and still haven't found a way to win. They lost for the seventh straight time to start the year and they just don't seem to have any answers. This is a game they'll be up for and if they can't find a way to win now then when are they going to?
