9 p.m. ET; SNF, MSG, NHL.TV

 

The Game

Chris Kreider will play in his 500th NHL game when the New York Rangers play the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday.

Kreider, the No. 19 pick in the 2009 NHL Draft, has 296 points (145 goals, 151 assists) in 499 games. He has four points (two goals, two assists) in a three-game point streak, and has 12 points (six goals, six assists) in his past 11 games.

The Rangers are 3-2-0 in their past five games after having one win in the previous five (1-3-1).

The Flames, who are 0-4-1 in the past five games at home, have lost two in a row and are 2-5-1 in their past eight games following a season-long seven-game winning streak.

 

Players to watch

Rangers forward Artemi Panarin was named the NHL's Third Star for December with 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) in 14 games, including 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in a three-game point streak to end the month.  

Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk has nine points (three goals, six assists) in his past six games.

 

They said it

"We're a hard-working team, guys that have trust in each other, guys that are willing to do their roles. Everyone's buying in. That's a key to a team, everybody's got to buy in to do their job. We stick to it and everybody does their job we're pretty successful." -- Rangers forward Brett Howden

"It's a big thing for us and something we talked about early in the season and something we want to get back to. It's four or five games now we've dropped at home. We want it to be a building where teams come in and know it's going to be a tough night and know they're going to play a real solid team that works really hard. We have to get back to that." -- Flames forward Mikael Backlund

Yeah, think these last two losses might really have sealed the season for the Rangers...barring something unforeseen, it feels like this was their opportunity to move, and they missed it.

Personally, I think Quinn and Ruff need to get canned. They both suck.
