Money Line Pick
Boston heads on the road again with a daunting task ahead, as the New York Rangers play host at Madison Square Garden. The Bruins pick-up a strong 4-1 victory at home over the Red Wings, but this quick turn around to go on the road makes it even tougher for Boston. The Rangers continue to be right on the edge in the hunt, but their recent four-game winning streak really bolsters their chances. The Bruins have just one loss in their last nine games, while the Rangers are 7-3 in their last 10 games. This match-up is bound to be worth the Sunday slot on NBC, and it will be all the more worth watching for that matter. New York has won six of the last 10 head-to-heads, so taking the Rangers’ money line is the right move here.
Over Under Pick
Both the Bruins and Rangers are well respected for the level they compete offensively, and both are three-goal per game capable teams. They are quite similar in that regard with both being ranked inside the top 10 in the NHL in goals per game average. The Bruins have scored four goals in four of their last six games. Those games all resulted in five-goal totals. With a team like the Rangers capable of scoring three or more goals in four straight games as the opposition. Taking an over six-goal total with high confidence is the easy choice.
