NY Rangers Game 12 Open Thread: Keeping the streak alive

The NY Rangers are looking to win their third straight with the Ottawa Senators coming to town

The Rangers have looked strong their last two games, with solid team wins over the Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators. Tonight they look to keep their win streak alive against the Ottawa Senators. It looks like it should be a mismatch, as the Rangers dominated the Sens in the second game of the season, but nothing is to be taken for granted with this Blueshirts team.

Yes, the Blueshirts are clicking with Ryan Strome centering Artemi Panarin and an actual 2C with Filip Chytil. However they are riding a shooting percentage spike. When that runs out, their league-worst shot-share numbers are going to rear their ugly heads. Let’s enjoy the run now, though.
