1 All Hail The King

In 11 career games against the Predators, Henrik Lundqvist is 7-4-0 with a 1.92 GAA, .937 SV% and two shutouts. His .937 SV% vs. the Preds is higher than it is against any other NHL opponent!

2 Fitting Right In

New Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk currently has a three-game point streak and has a point in six of eight games this season. Can he keep it going today?

3 Pucks on Net

The Blueshirts have fired at least 30 shot on goal in each of the last five games and in seven of eight games this season, averaging 34.3 shots per game (ninth in the league). Those shots have led to seven goals in the past two games.

4 Remember Me?

Jimmy Vesey was originally selected by the Nashville Predators in the third round (66th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft. After playing four years at Harvard, he elected not to sign with the Predators and instead came to New York. Rangers fans are sure happy about that!
