Panarin’s Rangers Still Looking to More Solid Performances 

The Rangers are now 2-3 in their last five games and 2-5 in the previous seven. New York has struggled to remain consistent with victories, which seems to be the team’s prime objective. 

Defeating the Senators and the Blues certainly helps. However, taking a hit against the Oilers, Ducks, and Blackhawks has taken a toll on the team’s consistency. 

Now the Rangers are looking to make their way back and will attempt to do so tonight. Artemi Panarin is expected to keep leading the Rangers with six goals and 24 assists for a total of 30 points. 

 

Eichel’s Golden Knights to Remain at the Top

The Golden Knights had a nine-game winning streak just a few weeks ago. Since then, the team has had more inconsistent performances, yet it has still managed to remain on top.

The Golden Knights are now 3-2 in their last five games and 3-5 in their previous eight, proving that the team has remained on a solid path to adding more victories to their season record. Jack Eichel has stood out as one of the top players, with 13 goals and 16 assists for a total of 29 points. Alex Pietrangelo has also added 18 assists to the team’s offensive effort.
