NY Rangers vs. New Jersey, 04/01/2019 19:00 EDT, Score: 2 - 4

Money Line: -117 New Jersey

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Win

I'm playing on NJ. It was 25 years ago that Mark Messier made his famous guarantee. Down 3-2 in the series, Messier guaranteed that the Rangers would win. As some of you will recall, Messier got a hat trick in that Game 6 and the Rangers would go on to win Game 7 in double-OT. (They'd then go on to win the Cup.) Needless to say, the stakes aren't nearly as high for this evening's game. Both teams are playing out the string. That said, playing with triple revenge, the Devils should be the more motivated team for this one. Venue and schedule in their favor, I expect them to get some payback. While the Rangers are off a road win at Philly yesterday afternoon, the Devils had the day off. A 5-2 loss on 3/16 dropped the Rangers to an ugly 1-8 (-6.5) when playing the second of b2b games. Devils get some payback.
