Tonight’s game between the Rangers and Kings is a rematch of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, but it’s far more than that for Los Angeles. The defending Stanley Cup champions are going into this contest two points behind the Calgary Flames in the battle for a playoff spot. With just 10 games left to play, every contest is critical for the Kings as they try to get into the postseason.
For the Rangers, this is an opportunity to get some revenge on the team that denied them the Cup by making Los Angeles’ road to the playoffs that much harder. On top that, the Rangers are in a tight battle for the Presidents’ Trophy.
The game will start at 7:00 p.m. ET and air on NBCSN. You can also stream it via NBC Sports Live Extra:
