STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: The Rangers are coming off two impressive wins in a row without their captain and their two top scorers from last year. They are getting it done with solid goaltending, team defense, and timely scoring from the entire lineup. Tonight, they face off against the cash-strapped Devils, and will do so with Jeremy Williams taking
Brandon Prust’s Todd White’s place in the lineup. The games are always intense when the Devils are in town, who are off to a terrible start. This is going to be another hard fought, physical game for the Rangers.
CRAZY THOUGHT: Williams gets a goal in his Rangers debut.
