Note: I’m on vacation through 11/22, and all of the game threads were written before I left. Lineups are impossible to predict this far in advance, so I’m leaving those out. I’ll do the best I can with the summaries and the crazy predictions.
Boy how the mighty have fallen. But stop me if you’ve heard this before. A team loses in the Stanley Cup Final, then loses in the Conference Final. Now barely hanging on to their playoff hopes, an aging Lightning team is at a crossroads. Sounds like the Rangers once the Senators bounced them in 2017, right? Tampa is following a very similar path.
The Rangers played one of their best games of the season when they defeated the Bolts 4-1 a little over two weeks ago. We’ll see if they can replicate that effort on the road tonight.
Crazy Prediction: No ex-Rangers score tonight.
Use this as your game thread for tonight. Game time is 7:00pm on MSG.
