The Rangers will be looking to pick up their fourth straight win after losing four straight (0-2-2).

Tonight’s game will be an ESPN+ and HULU exclusive. Per ESPN Press Room:

Launched in April 2018, ESPN+ has grown to more than 22.8 million subscribers. Fans sign up to ESPN+ for just $9.99 a month (or $99.99 per year) at ESPN.com, ESPNplus.com or on the ESPN App (mobile and connected devices).

Chris Kreider played the role of hero in the team’s 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday. His goal came with just 53 seconds left in OT to lift the team to their third straight win and a 1st place tie in the Metropolitan Division with the surprising New Jersey Devils.

“There’s definitely times we get a little bit frustrated,” Kreider said about the lack of scoring despite outplaying their opponent. “Just because that might wear on you a little bit doesn’t mean you get away from your game. And I thought we stuck with it.”

New York outshot Philadelphia by a 36-19 margin for the game.

Filip Chytil, who was injured in a 5-1 loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets on October 23rd is probable for tonight.

“There’s definitely a possibility,” Gerard Gallant said on Wednesday. “He lasted the whole practice and he felt good, so we’ll see.”

Chytil, 23, has three points (2G -1A) in 6 games this season.

Gallant is slated to speak with the media at 5:30 PM ET and likely to provide an update if Chytil will play.

Boston Bruins are NHL’s best

The Rangers will have their hands full with the Bruins who are undefeated when leading after two periods this season (8-0-0) and coming off a huge 6-5 OT comeback against the Pittsburgh Penguins after being down 5-2.

Boston is red-hot winning six straight and have a league best 4.40 goal per game average which will put Shesterkin and the Rangers defense to the test.

“They believe in there,” new Bruins coach Jim Montgomery said. “It’s incredible. It was 5-3 in the third period and we’re generating chances…there were like nine minutes left and it might not be our night but it was.”

New York won two out of three versus Boston last season and will hope to carry that over in this contest.
