The Blueshirts enter the contest with a 3-0-0 record, following a 5-2 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets in their home opener at MSG on Oct. 10.

3 STATS OF THE GAME

1.    The Rangers have won each of their first three games of a regular season for the sixth time in franchise history (1927-28, 1938-39, 1983-84, 1989-90, 2008-09, 2015-16). The Blueshirts’ franchise record for most consecutive wins to start a regular season is five, which was established in 1983-84 and matched in 2008-09.

2.    Oscar Lindberg was named the NHL’s Second Star of the Week for the week ending on Oct. 11. The 23-year-old rookie enters the contest with a three-game goal/point streak. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Lindberg is the first Rangers rookie to tally a goal in each of the team’s first three games of a season, and the sixth NHL rookie to register a goal in each of his team’s first three games of a season. Also according to the Elias Sports Bureau, Lindberg is the first Rangers rookie to tally a goal in each of the first three games of their rookie season since Steven King did so during the 1992-93 season (four straight games with a goal from Dec. 6, 1992 – Dec. 13, 1992).
