Rangers Vs Islanders Pre-Game And 5 Questions

The Rangers take on the Islanders tonight and look to extend their winning streak to 4 games. The game will be on at 7pm and can be seen on MSG and MSG+.

Notes and hits:

  • Brian Boyle is making his return to the lineup after being sat for three games.
  • Chris Kreider is a healthy scratch tonight. He’s making room for Boyle.
  • Martin Biron is going to make his second appearance of the season tonight in goal for the Rangers.
  • Evgeni Nabokov gets the start for the Islanders.
  • The Islanders have lost 5 straight games.

Five questions:

  1. Does Boyle play his best game of the season tonight?
  2. Agree or disagree with the scratching of Kreider.
  3. Who scores first tonight for the Rangers? (If anyone)
  4. I’m putting the over under of minutes Matt Gilroy plays tonight at 8. Do you take the over or the under?
  5. Marian Gaborik has 34 points in 28 games against the Isles. Does he get on the scoresheet tonight?
