The New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers meet in NHL action from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday afternoon.

The New York Rangers will look to build on their 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals in their last matchup. Artemi Panarin leads the Rangers in scoring with 18 points including 5 goals and 13 assists while Pavel Buchnevich has 12 points coming on 4 goals and 8 assists. Ryan Strome has 9 points with 5 goals and 4 assists while Adam Fox has 7 points with a goal and 6 helpers and Chris Kreider’s got 6 points with 5 goals on the year. Igor Shesterkin continues to start in goal for the Rangers logging 4 wins in 11 appearances while Alexandar Georgiev has 2 wins and a shutout with a 2.95 GAA compared to Shesterkin’s 2.23 GAA this season.

The Philadelphia Flyers will try to bounce back from a 7-3 loss to the Boston Bruins in their last game. James van Riemsdyk has a team-high 21 points with 8 goals and 13 assists while Kevin Hayes has 15 points coming on 6 goals with 9 helpers and Joel Farabee’s got 14 points with 8 goals and 6 assists. Jakub Voracek has 12 points with 3 goals and 9 assists and Claude Giroux has 11 points with 10 assists and Scott Laughton has 9 points with 4 goals and 5 helpers. It’s worth noting that mainstays like Travis Konecny, Scott Laughton, Oskar Lindblom, Jakub Voracek and Justin Braun are all out with COVID-19.  Carter Hart is Philadelphia’s top option in goal with a 5-4 record in 11 appearances and a 3.68 GAA while Brian Elliott has a 3-1 record with a shutout and a 2.25 GAA on the year.

New York is 6-14 in their last 20 games overall and 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. Philadelphia is 46-17 in their last 63 games as a favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Wednesday games. New York is 2-9 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that can be made for both sides as the Flyers are the better team here but they’re also missing a ton of bodies for this one because of COVID issues. Instead, I’m going to side with the under as these two teams don’t like each other no matter who is in the lineup and I think we should be expecting a tight, physical, low-scoring game to begin with. Give me the under in this spot.
