New York Rangers
The road trip has not been good for the Rangers thus far. After being able to bounce back strong on Saturday in Anaheim, New York then fell into the hands of the Kings in L.A. It was the team’s second loss in the trip as it lost to the Golden Knights in Vegas, 5-1, last Thursday. But amidst the inconsistent showing, the Rangers have still managed to stay at No. 2 spot in the Metropolitan Division. The game against the Sharks will be crucial for the Rangers as a win in San Jose would place them at a better position to cap the road trip on a winning note with the last one set in Philly on Saturday.
Players to watch: A. Fox D (G 5, A 31, PTS 36), A. Panarin LW (G 10, A 26, PTS 36), M. Zibanejad C (G 3, A 20, PTS 33).
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks notched another win last time around, albeit in a rather unconventional way. It was a welcome sight for the team, especially for their home fans as the winning streak was extended to three after the previous road trip ended with two huge victories in Buffalo and Philadelphia. The present run is a huge morale boost for San Jose, especially with the team continuing to jockey for a better position in the Pacific Division standings. As of the moment, the Sharks have the fourth best record in the group with 41 points in 37 games. Better things are yet to come for the Sharks as they expect each member to elevate their game as the season goes along.
Players to watch: T. Meier RW (G 15, A 24, PTS 39), T. Hertl C (G 20, A 11, PTS 31), L. Couture C (G 13, A 17, PTS 30
