Rangers won’t get caught cat napping tonight (FL v NYR 7pm)
The Rangers must be ready from the time they hit the ice for warmups. Although Florida has lost 6 of their last 7 games, they see this as chance to get back in the Wild Card hunt for the playoffs.
The Panthers are 8 points behind the Rangers and realize a loss tonight could be crushing to their playoff hopes. I’m expecting Cam Talbot to see his first game action since a January 15 (3-0 loss to Boston).
Don’t expect a letdown by the Blueshirts, who will look to build momentum from their win against Carolina and recent losses by Pittsburgh and Washington.

@travjax71 Definitely could see it for JMoore. Not out of realm of possibility for others. Miller salary controlled, so that’s a plus.
