Rangers’ Goaltending Depth, All-Around Play Likely Makes Them Bruins’ Top Competition in East

Two incredibly capable goalies. A strong defensive corps. Forwards who offer a balanced scoring attack. A head coach who has won a Stanley Cup before and has proved he's capable of winning. Sound familiar?

Both Bruins and Rangers fans are likely nodding their heads right now, and it's because of those qualities that both clubs have a realistic chance to be the Eastern Conference's representative in the Eastern Conference final.

The B's and Rangers meet on Saturday afternoon for the first time all year when they tangle at the Garden. The Instigators preview the matchup in the video above.
