2012 NHL Playoffs, Rangers Vs. Devils Game 2: Game Time, TV Coverage And More

The bad blood will start boiling once again when the sun goes down.

The New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils will play Game Two on Wednesday night of the Eastern Conference Finals at Madison Square Garden.

Game One went to the Rangers, 3-0, behind the strong performance of their defensemen and Henrik Lundqvist. New Jersey couldn't get many pucks past the throng of blue shirts blocking off shooting lanes.

However, it's a tough game to handicap going forward. While New York did play well and ultimately won the contest, the Devils were mostly dominant for the first two periods, doing everything but beating Lundqvist.

It can be looked upon in two ways: New Jersey is in deep trouble because it couldn't score and that will become the theme, or the Rangers need to play much better or they'll eventually get rolled.

Give New York credit though, they find ways to win a la the old Devils teams of Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko. It's not pretty, but it's very effective.

Wednesday night should bring a great game that New Jersey needs to win if its going to have a legitimate shot of reaching the Stanley Cup Finals.

TV: NBC Sports Network

Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
