The Rangers are 0-2-0 heading into this game and have not opened a season with three straight losses since 1998-99. Starting a shortened season with three straight losses would be tough for a Rangers team that is expected to contend for the Stanley Cup this season.
Meanwhile, the Bruins are 2-0-0 and look like the contenders they were expected to be.
It should be a good game between two contending teams tonight as the Rangers host the Bruins.
