For the second time in seven days, the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils will square off at Madison Square Garden. On Dec. 11, New York spanked their Jersey rivals by the score of 5-0. Antti Raanta was in the middle of his hot streak and the Devils couldn’t slow down the Blueshirts offense.
One Sunday later and the two teams are ready to get back after it.

“It’s a team we’ve seen pretty recently so we kind of know what to expect from them (Sunday),” Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh said. “Anytime you play the Devils it’s another tight-checking game. So, we have to make sure to take away their speed and skill to make it tough on them.”
The Devils are coming off a 3-1 loss on Saturday in Ottawa against the Senators.
“There were a lot of good things,” goaltender Keith Kinkaid said of his team’s play in Ottawa. “We’ll adjust for (Sunday) and bring the same compete level.”
Both teams will be partaking in their second game in as many nights. First puck drop comes your way at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on MSG Network.
