1 Mighty Mats
Last season, Mats Zuccarello led the Blueshirts with four points (one goal, three assists) in their season series with the Sharks. Can the nifty Norwegian keep up his attack on the Sharks?
2 Hank Almighty
The King has only allowed one goal or fewer in three of his last five starts against San Jose. He has also made at least 30 saves in four of those five contests (2-2-1 record, 2.26 GAA, .937 SV%, 1 SO over the span).
3 Point Taken
The Rangers enter their battle with San Jose with a three-game point streak (1-0-2 record over the span). Can the home team keep racking up the points?
4 Even It Up
The Blueshirts have 12 players who have recorded an even-strength goal this season. The Rangers are tied for second in the NHL in players who have tallied at least one even-strength goal in 2017-18.
