Our busy stretch run of NHL games continues tonight with seven matchups on the schedule. Let’s take our daily look at some of the key players out there before we settle in for the puck drops.
Semyon Varlamov, G, Colorado Avalanche: Varlamov continued the trend of holding the Rangers to a low score lately, allowing just one late goal in a 2-1 Colorado win at the Garden last night. He made 24 saves all together.
Matt Duchene and Chris Wagner each scored here, and the Avs have now won back-to-back road games after beginning their four-game trip with a loss. They’re currently 11-14-1 on the season.
The Rangers are in a tailspin right now, losing for the fifth time in six games to slip to 17-7-3.
