Game 7. Rangers at Devils. Actually felt odd typing Game 7. Rangers at Devils. Ya boys open a two-game, spread-out road trip, with a visit to their whining, diving, complaining Eastern Conference championship foes, the Montreal Canadiens, Saturday. Which no doubt will be the Habs’ Game 7. It will…

92 Captain Ryan McDonagh: The obvious choice
