Rangers Welcome Bruins to Madison Square Gardens
The New York Rangers welcome the Boston Bruins on Thursday in a game that'll be broadcast live on NBCSN and it's all about whether the Rangers can stop the rampant Bruins in this highly anticipated battle of the Eastern Conference enemies. The Bruins are on fire right now and having won ten of their last thirteen games they'll be looking to add yet another victory against a Rangers team that have recently lost on the road to both Washington and Columbus, however despite their poor recent form they're still in with a shout of an Eastern Conference wildcard position, giving them all to play for.
After a slow start to the season the Bruins have really picked things up and interim head coach Bruce Cassidy has seen a much improved offense, scoring 4.07 goals per game. Brad Marchand leads the way with a mighty 28 goals and 38 assists, with 3 goals and 4 assists in his last 3 games, however the Bruins will be taking nothing for granted in New York and know they'll have a job to do.
Despite a recent dip in form the Rangers look set to make the playoffs for the 7th season on the bounce, and they still have a great offense to call on, scoring 3.24 goals per game over the course of the season, and it's a well balanced offense too, with 8 players providing 30 or more points. The game also see 2 top goaltenders take to the ice with the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist allowing just 2.67 goals per game and having a .911 save percentage, while Tuukka Rask has a 2.27 goals per game average and a .913 save percentage.
