The Avalanche are coming off a 3-1 win over the Golden Knights over the weekend. That coming after losing three of four games. The Avs continue to operate overshifting forwards. Nathan MacKinnon, Valeri Nichushkin, Artturi Lehkonen and Mikko Rantanen are playing the bulk of the minutes. The lack of a clear No. 2 center may need to be addressed sooner rather than later.
The Rangers came out the gate looking like a juggernaut before losing three of four games heading into Tuesday. The Rangers have only mustered four goals in those losses. The goaltending has also regressed this season so far. Igor Shesterkin is 3-0-1 but has a 2.75 GAA and .901 SV%. He remains the Vezina Trophy favorite early on.
