The NHL is back! While the dates are being hammered out, the Blue shirts will be facing the Jerky Boys.

Five Interesting Thoughts:

1. Who is between the pipes: Do you go with experience, Henrik Lundqvist? the mad scientist's assistant, Igor Shestyorkin who is fully healed from a fractured rib?

2. The Rangers' top 2 scoring lines are filthy and for the first time, healthy: Kreider is back. No one wants to deal with Rangers offense.

3. Skjei is back and will be motivated

4. Who will step up defensively for the Rangers?

5. Who will win?
