The Devils face the Rangers at Madison Square Garden for the first time this season on Thursday. Miles Wood said that it's hard to believe that an entire half season has passed without a contest at the World's Most Famous Arena. 

"To be honest, it's crazy fast how fast the first 42 games were," said Wood. "Overall I'm super excited for tomorrow. you know, it's a great place to play at. It's one of my favorite places to play. I mean, just the history behind it, the team we're playing against, and, the circumstances that we're in."

Wood added that the team needs to be mindful of the active Rangers blueline. 

"Their D first and foremost," he said when asked about what the team needs to be pay attention to. "They jump up in the play."

He also noted that the Rangers are solid up front. 

"They're fast. The first line is pretty special over there," he said. "Overall I think they're a young, deep group and it's going to be a good test for us. But we'll for sure be up for it."
