Prediction: New York Rangers 1 – Tampa Bay Lightning 0
This should be a very close game. If Andrei Vasilevskiy was not injured at the beginning of the season Tampa Bay would have more wins on their record. However, the Rangers as a whole are the more talented and faster team, so the Blueshirts should take care of business tonight.
