Covers Preview - The New York Rangers remain the talk of the town, not for their lofty standing atop the Metropolitan Division but rather having former Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist remain on the bench in favor of Antti Raanta. After sitting out two straight games for the first time since 2013-14, Lundqvist (12-8-1, 2.55 goals-against average) is expected to get the call on Sunday in the latest version of the Hudson River Rivalry as the Rangers host the New Jersey Devils.
