New York Rangers Vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Preview

The New York Rangers will travel to Tampa Bay to face the Lightning on Friday night, as they look to build on their sparkling 41-15-6 record. With 88 points on the season, the Rangers trail only the Vancouver Canucks with 90, but have one less loss and two less overtime losses than the Canucks.

The Rangers have won three consecutive games, including a three to two win over the Hurricanes on Thursday night. On Friday, the Rangers will be playing the second game of a back-to-back, both on the road. The Rangers are 8-2 in back-to-backs this season.

The Lightning are also coming off consecutive wins, most recently against the Canadians on Tuesday. At 29-26-6 with 64 points, they trail the eight-seed Winnipeg Jets by six points with less then 20 games remaining in the season.
