The New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils play Tuesday night at the Prudential Center.

Henrik Lundqvist was extremely shaky out of the gate, but he’s allowed just one goal in his last two starts. Overall, Lundqvist has allowed 15 goals on 139 save attempts and has won five straight regular season games when allowing two or less goals. The Rangers have allowed just one power play goal in their last three games. Offensively, the Rangers offense has picked up the pace, as Rick Nash has seven goals, Martin St. Louis has four assists and Lee Stempniak has 18 shots on goal. However, the New York Rangers have yet to score a power play goal this season. Kevin Klein is questionable for this game with a facial injury.

The Rangers are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning record and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Devils are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-17 in their last 25 games playing on 2 days rest. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Getting the better team for even money? That always sounds good to me. Take the Rangers given the value.
