Rangers: There's been quite a bit of success for the Rangers against the Maple Leafs over the past several years. The Rangers have earned at least one point in 11 of their last 13 meetings with the Maple Leafs, posting a 9-2-2 record over that span---and outscoring Toronto 48-25 in those 13 games. Both of the regulation losses by the Rangers in this span took place last year when the Leafs won twice at Madison Square Garden. In the only meeting this year the Rangers skated to a 5-2 Garden victory on January 26th. Last season the Rangers won both games played at Air Canada Centre, including a 3-0 Marty Biron-backstopped shutout on January 14, 2012.

 

Maple Leafs: Toronto has the fourth best penalty kill among all teams in the NHL this season, and the Maple Leafs have been especially good on the kill as of late. The Maple Leafs have a solid 86.7 percent success rate this year, and have allowed only three power play goals in their last 17 games---covering 49 man disadvantages. They have allowed two power play goals in a single game on only two occasions this season.
