Team News

The New York Rangers have secured their spot in the playoffs this term, but their attention will now turn toward heading into the post-season in the best possible form. New York has won each of their previous three games in the NHL, and they could move up to fourth in the standings with a win on Thursday.

They could be very serious contenders in the Eastern Conference playoffs this term, as they have been consistent throughout the season at both home and on the road. Away from home, they have gone 22-8-6 this term, meaning only the Hurricanes and Devils have suffered fewer regulation losses on their travels.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo Sabres aren’t completely out of the hunt for a playoff finish just yet. They come into this game sitting eleventh in the Eastern Conference standings, but they are just five points off the top eight. The Sabres will need to bounce back, as they have landed just three wins over their last ten.

They also come into this game after suffering a recent loss against the Montreal Canadiens at home. That defeat at the KeyBank saw their home record slip to 14-20-4, which is hardly a home record that is fitting of a playoff finish in the NHL this season.


The Rangers have been consistent throughout this term, and could arguably be the standout team to challenge the Bruins and Hurricanes in the East. We expect them to record a fourth straight win on Friday.
