352 Rangers at Predators … It’s Go Time!

Game 50. Rangers at Predators. First the news: Derek Stepan is under the weather and will be a game-time decision, though Alain Vigneault said his chances of playing are less than 50/50. I’m gonna climb out on a nice thick, comfy limb and guess that no matter which way…
