New York Rangers: Regressing after a strong season start
Terrific out of the starting gate, with a 16-3-2 record, the Rangers have regressed some as New York is just 2-5-1 dating back to November 25. Following a long run at the top, the Blueshirts have fallen one point behind the Washington Capitals who now own first place in the NHL Metropolitan Division. After sweeping through Western Canada a year ago, outscoring the Canucks, Oilers and Flames by a 12-3 combined margin, New York lost 2-1 in Vancouver on Wednesday to open their 2015 WestCan trek. Pointless in three games – Rick Nash is due to bust out at some point.
Edmonton Oilers: Momentum has been building during December in the Alberta Capital
Pulling out of a 3-7-2 skid, which began with the loss of stud rookie Connor McDavid to a shoulder injury on November 3, Edmonton has picked up the pace as they are on a 5-1-0 roll and have won four straight home games. The Oilers four December wins have been close as they outscored the Bruins, Stars, Sabers and Sharks by a 13-8 margin. The goal total is a step in the right direction as the Oilers closed November on a 1-3-1 slide and scored just seven goals during those five games.
Oilers vs Rangers NHL Prediction: Edmonton last played on Wednesday recording a 4-3 (OT) win against San Jose. Henrik Lundqvist (14-6-3 GAA 1.99) versus Anders Nilsson (9-7-1 GGA 2.51) is the netminding matchup tonight. King Henry allowed four goals and he’s 1-1-1 during his last three starts. Nilsson stopped 137 of the 145 shots he faced and has been a key contributor to the Oilers four game winning streak. Edmonton has trouble riding momentum, they haven’t posted a 6-1-0 line since November 2011, while New York is too talented to keep losing.
