The third and final game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers takes place tonight in New York. The Rangers won game one in Toronto on October 18th, and the Maple Leafs got the upper hand the last time in November to split the series, it all comes down to game three tonight in New York.
This regular-season series has been rather fun to watch. Toronto and New York are two of the top teams in their respective divisions, and this could very well be the conference final matchup should each team make it through the first two rounds of the playoffs.
The Rangers are being led once against by Adam Fox who is having another Norris Trophy season, and Chris Kreider is killing it with his shooting percentage this year putting up 24 goals, just one behind Auston Matthews who has 25 on the season.
The goalie battle in this one definitely is leaning Igor Shesterkin’s way as he has been playing unbelievable all season. Both teams last played on January 15th and won their respective games.
