Minnesota Wild vs New York Rangers 01/28/2022 Betting Odds:
The Minnesota Wild plays the villain’s role as they aim to play spoilers to Lundqvist’s jersey retirement ceremony. Surging as they ride a three-game winning streak, the Wild will look to add to their winning record and send notice to the entire league. While most members of the team respect Lundqvist and his illustrious career, the Wild mean business when they are inside the rink. They will be out with their A-game: being pesky on the defensive end while being efficient on scoring. The Rangers will be a significant test to Minnesota and their campaign to go deep into the season. Players will be ready with their gears and play no-nonsense hockey once the puck is dropped.
Players to watch: K. Kaprizov LW (G 16, A 28, PTS 44), M. Zuccarello RW (G 16, A 14, PTS 30), R. Hartman RW (G 16, A 14, PTS 30).
New York Rangers
The Rangers are up to the pressure to perform well on a very special night at the MSG. But as proven this season, the team is expected to thrive as evinced by their 28-12-4 overall record for 60 points so far this year. Henrik Lundqvist is an image of winning for New York; therefore, fans expect nothing less of a W on Friday night. New York has won nine of its past 13 games but the team is coming off a heartbreaking setback against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday on the road, 5-3. Despite the loss, the Rangers are still among the top teams in the Metropolitan Division. Perhaps inspired by Lundqvist, home fans can expect a bounce back from their team.
Players to watch: A. Fox D (G 5, A 34, PTS 39), A. Panarin LW (G 10, A 28, PTS 38), C. Kreider LW (G 24, A 11, PTS 35).
