Injuries

New York Rangers

Edmonton Oilers

Brady Stonehouse – Undisclosed – On IR

Stonehouse has been injured for some time now and was even placed on IR due to his injury.

Connor McDavid – Upper Body Injury – Out 1-2 Weeks

This injury is the reason why the Oilers have been a mess since the beginning of the season. Connor McDavid is one of the most talented players in the NHL today. He and Draisaitl have arguably been carrying this franchise for the past few years. McDavid is going to be out for a few weeks due to an upper-body injury that he suffered against the Winnipeg Jets. So, as a result, he will be out for tonight’s game

Prediction: New York Rangers 4 – Edmonton Oilers 0

With McDavid out, this choice is a lot easier. One of the main criticisms of the Oilers is that they over-rely on McDavid, Draisaitl, and whoever the goalie is depending on the year. If one goes down, Draisaitl or McDavid, then this team is an absolute mess like they are now. The Rangers should win this game, and will likely dominate not only by being the better team but also by being the healthier team.
