Money Line Pick
The Rangers are playing good hockey at the right time, as they have quickly moved into the very tight Wild-Card race in the east. Philadelphia is just hoping to keep their momentum rolling as well. The Flyers enter on four-straight wins. New York extended their winning streak to five in a row with another comfortable win against Montreal. The Rangers haven’t had the best of luck in recent games against the Flyers, having lost seven of the last 10 head-to-heads. New York didn’t really have any answers in the most recent clash, which was also played at Wells Fargo Center, as the Flyers blew open the doors with a 5-1 win. Both teams are playing tough but taking the Flyers at home is the right move.
Over Under Pick
Both the Rangers and Flyers remain well inside the top 10 in the NHL in goal scoring average. New York has scored at least three goals in each of their last five games. That includes four goals or more in four of those five games. Philadelphia has also been a relentless offensive team with four or more goals scored in each of their last four games. The Flyers and Rangers combined for six goals in their most recent clash, as Philadelphia put up five goals alone. Both teams are explosive, and that makes taking an over six-goal total with high confidence an easy choice.
