Rangers (22-14-5, 49 pts) at Golden Knights (28-10-2, 58 pts)
9:30 PM; T-Mobile Arena
MSG+; ESPN 1050 AM

The Game

The Rangers wrap up a back-to-back set out west with their first visit to Vegas against the Golden Knights before heading into the bye week.

New York left Arizona with a 2-1 victory in the shootout behind 37 saves from Henrik LundqvistJimmy Vesey scored the only goal in regulation while Mika Zibanejad potted the only tally in the shootout. Lundqvist stopped all three shooters he faced.

Mats Zuccarello missed last night's game with an illness and his status for tonight's matchup in Vegas is unknown. Also unknown is who will start in net for the Blueshirts.

The victory bumped the Rangers into third in the Metropolitan Division, two points behind New Jersey for second. The win also gives New York a four-point edge on Pittsburgh, who is currently the first team on the outside of the playoffs looking in.

The Rangers take on the Golden Knights for the second and final time this season. The Blueshirts topped the Golden Knights, 6-4, on Oct. 31 at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers rallied for two goals down in the third and outscored Vegas 4-0 in the final period. The win changed the fortunes of the Rangers, who have now won 18 of 28 games since that victory.

The Golden Knights have been the surprise of the season, as few, if any, saw the expansion team sitting atop of the Western Conference and second overall after one week in 2018. They're 9-1 in their last 10 and 13-2-1 since the start of December. Vegas has dominated at home, going 17-2-1 at T-Mobile Arena.

Jonathan Marchessault leads the team with 39 points, followed by 24-year-old William Karlsson, who leads the club with 21 goals. Vegas has four players with 15 or more goals this season.

Vegas has received strong goaltending from seemingly whomever is in goal, though its two top netminders Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban have been exceptional. Fleury is 8-2-1 with a .944 SV % and a 1.80 GAA, while Subban is 11-2-0 with a .918 SV%, and has worked his way into the Calder Trophy discussion for the NHL's top rookie.

Players to Watch

If Lundqvist was New York's best player overall last night, Vesey was not far behind and easily the team's top skater. He was a force beginning in the second period and his individual effort on the Rangers' lone goal in regulation was impressive, as he stripped the puck from Oliver Ekman-Larsson and drove to the net for the goal. The second-year forward has points in five of his last eight games with three goals and two assists during that stretch, and 11 points in his last 21 contests.

The 27-year-old Marchessault has made the most of his opportunity in the desert and has become an offensive weapon for the Golden Knights after two strong campaigns in Florida with the Lightning and the Panthers. After scoring 30 goals last year in South Florida, Marchessault is on pace to set a new career-high as he has 16 goals in 37 games, while his 23 assists have already surpassed his high mark from a year ago. The forward has six points in his last five games entering tonight's contest with the Rangers.

Say What?

"Jimmy was skating real well [last night]. He was confident with the puck and made some good plays, and that's what we need from him. I think in the last little while here, he's been playing some good hockey and we need him to continue to play the way he's doing right now." - Alain Vigneault on Jimmy Vesey's game in Arizona

Inside the Numbers

The Rangers have posted a 21-5-3-0 record in their first all-time road game against the other 29 teams currently in the NHL (not including Vegas).

Yeah, what this team in Vegas has done so far is very impressive. You have to give them credit.

No offense to the Boogie Knights themselves as they've done a masterful job of putting together a team and executing but I hate the rules that allowed them to get all those pieces.

Of course it's not their fault nor is it the league's fault that Florida decided to gift them 2/3rds of a top scoring line.

I really wanted to see this game tonight in person. My family in Vegas even grabbed some tix months ago and offered to give me one. Just couldn’t travel this week due to work and other shiz. The home ice experience in Vegas is supposed to be the best in the league. Like MSG circa 1979.

After watching last night’s performance, I’m almost glad that I’d didn’t fly 5.5 hours to see these softies get their asses kicked. VGK is hungry and well coached. They lost to the Rangers when they had a 5th string goalie in net. Now with Fleury they are a legit playoff team. Not convinced that they’re a Cup contender just yet. Scoring depth and playoff experience may be lacking a bit, and they will run into some tough teams in the playoffs.

How can I watch AV’s Rangers and NOT drink? Either I have a pop or two, or my TV gets a remote thrown through it.
