POINT TAKEN – New York has earned at least one point in 12 of its last 13 contests (9-1-3) and in 15 of its last 17 contests (12-2-3). The Blueshirts have earned at least one point in 35 of their last 45 games (32-10-3), including 33 of their last 42 games (30-9-3) and 31 of their last 38 contests (28-7-3). The Rangers have also earned at least one point in 45 of their last 59 games (38-14-7), including 38 of their last 49 games (33-11-5).
You may recall that the original faceoff time was scheduled for a 7:00 PM start. That was changed because there was the possibility of another event being scheduled in the evening. That has since changed, but the game start was not going to be shifted back.
So once again, if you’re heading to Hartford this Saturday for the game against the bears, faceoff time is now 3:30 PM.
