Tonight, the New York Rangers will be taking on the Carolina Hurricanes. The Rangers are looking to keep their five-game win streak going after they beat the Winnipeg Jets 3–2 in Overtime. In the case of the Carolina Hurricanes, they are also on a winning streak as they have won their last three games.


New York Rangers 7-2-0

Carolina Hurricanes 6-4


The New York Rangers are back home. After a grueling travel schedule, the Blueshirts will be playing in the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden which is located in New York, NY.

Projected Lineup


Kreider – Zib – Kakko

Panarin – Chytil – Laf

Cuylle – Trocheck – Wheeler

Goodrow – Bonino – Vesey


Lindgren – Fox

Miller – Trouba

Gustafsson – Schneider


Igor Shesterkin


New York Rangers


The Rangers still do not have any players listed on the injury report. That is absolutely awesome and hopefully, the Blueshirts remain healthy once this game is over.

Carolina Hurricanes

Ryan Suzuki – Shoulder – Game Time Decision

Suzuki, on the other hand, will be one to watch for tonight. He suffered a shoulder issue against the Nashville Predators in the preseason and has not played a single game this season. However, it looks like Suzuki could be returning soon for the team. The question remains whether he will make his debut in the AHL or NHL. While it remains uncertain, I decided to mention his name here as an NHL injury just to be safe.

Brett Pesce – Lower Body – OUT (2-4 Weeks)

Pesce had no chance of playing in tonight’s game. He suffered an injury in late October and ultimately had to have surgery. He should be closer to a return in mid-November.

Prediction:  New York Rangers 3 – Carolina Hurricanes 2

This is a tough one because the Hurricanes and Rangers were my pick to play in the Eastern Conference Finals. In this matchup, with how much of a hot streak the Blueshirts are on and being the healthier team, they should win this game. It will be a closer victory, but the Rangers should take care of business tonight.

3 Stars of the Game Prediction

1. Artemi Panarin

2. Chris Kreider

3. K’Andre Miller
