The New Jersey Devils stood up and made a statement on Thursday night. After two days off, New Jersey looked refreshed. They fired over 40 shots on Igor Shesterkin in a 4-0 win. Now, they will try to close the Rangers out in New York on Saturday night.

New Jersey never trailed and was never really threatened in the Game 5 home victory.

Online sportsbooks still lean on the New York Rangers in Saturday’s NHL odds, but are +250 underdogs for the overall series.

New Jersey vs New York NHL Betting News

The Devils and Rangers keep on fighting as the teams continue their “friendly” Hudson River rivalry.

Some wondered if Luke Hughes should play, but maybe it is best he watches this series from the press box after all. Expect things to only get nastier from here.

Surely, some players are banged up on both sides. One thing is clear. New Jersey will roll with the status quo.

New Jersey saw their numbers shift for the Stanley Cup odds at +1100 while New York is now +2200.

Devils vs Rangers Analysis

Both goaltenders saw a different volume of work in Game 5. New Jersey opened the scoring with an Ondrej Palat goal in the first minute. The Devils never looked back. New Jersey added two more goals in the second period via special teams (one PPG, one SHG). Then, they kept the Rangers in their own zone for most of the final stanza outshooting them 20-2.

Now, this was the first time a home team made an emphatic stand in the series. Can New York rebound or could this series end on Saturday night?

New Jersey keeps generating more and more quality scoring chances. Once more, Akira Schmid continued to stay calm and add to his playoff numbers.

Yes, Schmid ranks behind Shesterkin in high-danger scoring chances saved above expectation. The Rangers have had their opportunities, but New Jersey has enjoyed more of them.

So, this is truly a series. The question becomes do we see a Game 7 early next week?

Can the Rangers make a response to the New Jersey offensive onslaught? New York showed in the second period that the dam could break in their favor again.

Devils vs Rangers Prediction

What do both teams do differently on Saturday night? Can the home team score first? Does the road team continue to skate freely and tilt the ice? New York’s ten goals in the first two games seems like a month ago.

On the national stage again, do the Devils and Rangers produce a few more goals? Or, do the goaltenders steal the show again?
