New York Rangers
New York Rangers are looking to complete resurrection from being initially disregarded for the postseason round. They have ultimately flipped their fortunes to make things interesting in the Eastern Conference wild-card race, pulling themselves to within two points from Columbus who currently sits at the last playoff spot in the conference. Mika Zibanejad has embraced his role as one of the Rangers’ reliables as he already matched his career-high in total goals of 30, which was set last season, with still a number of games to be played. Ryan Strome was in his bag last Thursday, chalking up two goals for his 17th and 18th of the season, and an assist to lift the team over the Canadiens.
Players to watch: Artemi Panarin (GP 62, G 32, A 55, PTS 87), Mika Zibanejad (GP 50, G 30, A 32, PTS 62), Ryan Strome (GP 63, G 18, A 40, PTS 58).
The Flyers brushed off the Sharks on Tuesday in Philly, 4-2, to improve their home record to 22-5-4 while logging in their 13th win in 18 games. Confidence is key heading to Friday’s match up against the Rangers as the Flyers easily ripped New York in their last meeting on December, 5-1. Kevin Hayes had two goals in the said match and he will be expected to provide quality minutes anew for the Flyers as he has been the benchmark for Philly which posts a 17-0-1 record whenever he scores in a match. Travis Konecny stays at the forefront of the club’s leaderboard in points, bragging 57 behind 22 goals and 35 assists.
Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 60, G 22, A 35, PTS 57), Sean Couturier (GP 63, G 19, A 36, PTS 55), Jakub Voracek (GP 63, G 12, A 34, PTS 46).
