The New York Rangers look to keep pace with the Carolina Hurricanes for the Metropolitan division lead tonight, as they host the Winnipeg Jets. Tone's Takes breaks down the game.

New York Rangers vs Winnipeg Jets Prediction: Can the Rangers Get the Division Crown Tonight?

The New York Rangers enter tonight's contest trailing the Carolina Hurricanes by two points for the Division crown after the Canes beat the Coyotes last night to gain a two-point lead. The Rangers do have a game in hand, which is tonight. New York is coming off back-to-back 4-0 shutout wins at Philadelphia and home against Detroit, on Saturday. After being benched against the Flyers, Alexis Lafreniere returned to the lineup to score two goals against the Red Wings, getting him going will be an added element to a team that nobody wants to play in the playoffs.

Winnipeg's season is unofficially finished, they are coming off back-to-back losses in Florida, 6-1 to the Panthers on Friday and 7-4 to the Lightning on Saturday. The Jets are ten points out of a playoff spot with six games remaining.

This is the second meeting of the season with New York picking up a 4-1 win, at Winnipeg, in early March. I like the Rangers to light the lamp early and often tonight as they have their sights set on the Metropolitan Division crown.
