The New York Rangers and Boston Bruins will meet for the final time during this shortened regular season. The two teams have split their first two games with the Bruins taking the season opener 3-1 and the Rangers winning the rematch 4-3 in overtime thanks to a Marian Gaborik hat trick.
Tonight's Rangers are a little different than the team the Bruins face in Madison Square Garden a few weeks ago. This Rangers team has J.T. Miller, Darroll Powe and a little bit more of a swagger.
That confidence will be put to the test tonight, however. The Bruins are one of the NHL's elite. The Rangers were with them during the preseason but dropped off after a slow start. Since that slow start, the Rangers are 5-2 in their last seven games. They've strung together four wins in their last five games and won their last two contests by a combined score of 9-2.
Finale Poses Huge Litmus Test For Rangers
