One of the NHL's biggest and best rivalries kicks off in the form of an Eastern Conference Championship Monday night.
The East's top-seeded New York Rangers are fresh off of a Game 7 win against the Washington Capitals.
The sixth-seeded Devils finished off the heavily favored Philadelphia Flyers in only five games to earn a well deserved few days' rest.
The regular season saw the division rivals face off six times with the series split dead even at 3-3.
Vezina and Hart Trophy candidate Henrik Lundqvist leads his team into Madison Square Garden to take on the visiting New Jersey Devils who are backstopped by three time Cup winner Martin Brodeur.
Ilya Kovalchuk and Brad Richards lead their respective teams in points. While Kovalchuk holds the slight edge in points by a 12-11 mark, it is Brad Richards who is the East's top scorer with six goals, edging out both Ilya Kovalchuk and Travis Zajac who have five.
