The New York Rangers look to build on their most recent road win against the Boston Bruins and get back to being the road warriors we know and love.
- New York Rangers (19-12-3)
- New Jersey Devils (19-9-5)
- Prudential Center, Newark, NJ
- Television: MSG Networks
The New York Rangers have won three in a row, the latest being a 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday in a game where they looked rusty but were still able to come out victorious.
Next up, they’ll hit the road for a Metropolitan Division clash on Thursday night when they play the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center.
Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start in goal for the Blueshirts one game removed from bringing his save percentage up to .920 following his 39 save performance against the Ducks where he carried the Rangers to victory.
Hank’s new gear
Henrik Lundqvist unveiled his pads for the 2018 Winter Classic on Wednesday.
Lundqvist is going along with the same route he did when the Rangers played in the 2014 Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium where he went with pinstripe pads. This time, he’s dedicating his pads to the New York Mets with their primary logo with the Rangers Winter Classic logo in place of the word “Mets.”

Lundqvist on the verge of more history
Following the Rangers win on Tuesday, Henrik Lundqvist is nearing another historic milestone being just one win away from tying Tony Esposito for eighth place on the NHL all-time wins list.
Lundqvist has been making quite a lot of history over the last couple of seasons and as long as he keeps playing, the more history he will make. Just recently he reached the 20,000 save mark and passed Tony Esposito the second most wins with one team.
