Rangers Beat Devils (Again)

Devils Rumors & NewsRangers Rumors & News

Thanks, Devils. They seem to solve all the Rangers’ problems, don’t they? The Blueshirts defeated David Puddy’s favorite team (el diablo!) out at the Rock yet again, by a score of 5-2. New Jersey was sorely undermanned (John MacLean had to fill in and take a few shifts), but it still counts in the standings. It was the first time the Rangers faced the Devils franchise without Martin Brodeur in goal since they were the Kansas City Scouts back in 1976.

Matt Ryan (Falcons) vs. Broncos- Ryan has thrown at least two TD passes in three straight games and now has 11 TD passes to five interceptions on the season. Ryan should do well against a Broncos defense that is 28th in the NFL in passing yards allowed. WR Roddy White is tied for second …
