A little more cautious stake because I do not follow NHL intensively for several years. Islanders have played yesterday and won against Montreal, which is a solid team, somewhere in the Rangers ranks. This was their third win in a row, which is great considering that they are with New Jersey by far the worst team in the league. First goalie DiPietro is still injured, and veteran Roloson (41 years) is currently they first goalie.
Rangers have had more time to rest, because they played last game on Christmas Eve, when they lost at home against Tampa after OT. Their goalie Lundqvist is one of the better goalie in the league, but in the last couple of games he allowed a lot of goals in his net. Today he hopes for better statistics, because the tradition is on his side. In the last two home games of mutual had two shutout, and a league record with Boston's Thomas with five shutout. Gaborik will probably be ready after minor injuries, and it means a lot to the team as a scorer and an assistant, but this season has played only 22 games due to frequent injuries.
