The Rangers have proved resilient defensively despite being on the back foot for most of this series, frustrating the Panthers by locking down their defensive zone and getting great goaltending from Igor Shesterkin, just as they did against Carolina last series.

Shesterkin leads all remaining goaltenders with a save percentage of .925 and will continue to keep the Rangers in the contest. The strength of New York is their depth with their third and fourth lines producing, while their opposition focuses on the top-two formations. 

Expect the trend to continue with goals in this game that sees the Game Total go Over.

  • Florida have lost 3 of their past 4 home games in the playoffs.

New York Rangers Form


After dropping the first game 0-3, the Rangers have now got a couple of overtime wins on the back of their solid defence and the form of goaltender Igor Shesterkin.

The Russian netminder has stopped 83 of 90 shots he has faced in this series and has a goals against average of 2.33 in the 2024 playoffs.

The Rangers did it the hard way in their 5-4 OT win in game three, having a two-minute defensive lapse where they gave up two quick third period goals to the Panthers. These mistakes have been very uncommon for the Rangers in the postseason and they were lucky to escape with the victory in Florida on Sunday. 

New York Rangers Team News


Jimmy Vesey is carrying an upper-body injury and it is uncertain if he will participate.

Florida Panthers Form


Florida have controlled most of this series, but find themselves down 2-1 in matches heading into game four. 

The Panthers have outshot the Rangers 91-77 and have had much more pressure and time in their offensive zone compared to New York, however, they have failed to capitalize. 

Sergei Bobrovsky had a nightmare match in Game 3, finishing with a save percentage of just .783 letting in 5 goals off 23 shots. Bobrovsky has otherwise been very reliable in net for the Panthers with a .903 percentage in the playoffs.
