Rangers-JT Miller: The Rangers first round selection in the 2011 NHL Draft is expected to make his NHL debut Tuesday against the Devils, after being recalled from the minor leagues on Monday afternoon. It has been quite the ride for the 19 year-old first-year pro who not only made the Connecticut Whale roster out of training camp, but also earned a spot in the AHL All Star Game, before receiving the call to the NHL on Monday. In addition Miller helped Team USA win gold at the 2013 World Junior Championships, tying for the team lead with nine points. An intelligent, physical player with growing offensive skills, Miller is a prototypical John Tortorella player. Now he just needs to show he is ready to compete at this high level, which will be a major challenge for such a young player.
Devils-Martin Brodeur: The seemingly ageless Devils goaltender is playing in his 19th season in the NHL, and is still among the league's elite. Now 40 years-old, Brodeur has won more games (659) than any other goaltender in NHL history, while his 120 shutouts---including one already this season---are far more than any other goalie has ever had in the National Hockey League. Brodeur, who has made six starts this year with a 3-1-2 record, 2.75 goals against average, and .899 save percentage, has 46 wins and a 2.12 goals against average lifetime in his career against the Rangers.
