After starting off the series with a 2-0 lead by winning both road games, the Rangers have looked awful, especially in the last two matchups. They now head back home to Madison Square Garden down 3-2 with their season on the line.

Devils vs Rangers Prediction & Pick
The Rangers looked horrendous in Game 5, and things have been trending in the wrong direction the last three games after an impressive 2-0 start in this series.
Yes, New York is 0-2 at home in this series, but the MSG crowd and atmosphere are different, especially in an elimination game. Accordingly, I expect the Rangers to bounce back in this one.
New York has been impressive at home all season (23-13-5), and if any night is the night to reclaim that, Game 6 on Saturday will be it. Expect a big night from goalie Igor Shesterkin and the Rangers' leading playmakers.
Final Score Prediction: Rangers: 4 | Devils: 1
The Rangers have pretty much lived and died with the play of Chris Kreider this series, as he had 4 goals in the first two games and added a fifth in Game 3. As one of the team's leaders, I expect him to get back on track and put one in the back of the net. New York's normally great power play has fallen by the wayside the last three games after Kreider dominated it in Games 1 and 2.
Don't overthink this one. Expect the Rangers' best players to step up on Saturday, starting with Kreider.
Bet: Chris Kreider Anytime Goal Scorer (TBD)
