The Rangers are finally back in action today against the surprisingly undefeated Edmonton Oilers. The Blueshirts are well rested after a week off following their gruesome two game start to the season. The Oilers are undefeated behind the league leader in goals
Connor McDavid James Neal. Wait what?
Yes, the Oilers are 4-0 right now, one of the last undefeated teams in the NHL. The only thing we know for certain is that list will have one less team on it after today, since the Rangers are also undefeated in their first two games of the year. We also know that after today, the Rangers will get ANOTHER week off. Whose idea was this?
