New York Rangers: Rolling along in NHL Eastern Conference
Following a slow start to their 2013-14 season, that had New York sitting with a 15-17-1 record halfway through December, the Rangers have been one of the hottest clubs in the league recently. Since December 16, 2013, the Blueshirts have posted a 16-7-2 record and currently sit second in the Metropolitan Division. New York, backed by strong goaltending and a hot offense, has won four straight games (and 10 of 13) by a combined 18-5 final count.
Edmonton Oilers: Western Conference Young Guns shooting blanks
Despite what appeared to be a solid rebuilding process, that dates back to the glory days of Wayne Gretzky, the Young Guns from the Alberta Capital have been shooting nothing but blanks for years now. Edmonton (19-33-6) hasn’t made it to the NHL playoff party for seven straight seasons and they won’t get an invitation again this year. Though they have played decent lately, with a 4-1 recent record, the Oilers are in tough in the Big Apple tonight.
