The Boston Bruins and New York Rangers meet Friday in NHL action at Madison Square Garden.
The Boston Bruins look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Boston Bruins are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 30 percent of their power play opportunities. Brad Marchand leads Boston with nine goals, Patrice Bergeron has 12 assists and Nick Ritchie has 37 shots on goal. Defensively, the Boston Bruins are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 87.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Tuukka Rask has given up 26 goals on 263 shots faced and Jaroslav Halak has allowed 10 goals on 138 shots.
The New York Rangers need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The New York Rangers are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 14.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with eight goals, Artemi Panarin has 13 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 51 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 84.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Igor Shesterkin has given up 27 goals on 334 shots faced and Alexandar Georgiev has given up 17 goals on 159 shots.
The Bruins are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 10-3 in their last 13 overall. The Rangers are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 6-15 in their last 21 overall. The under is 14-6 in Bruins last 20 road games. The under is 16-5 in Rangers last 21 overall. The Bruins are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in New York and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
The Boston Bruins may be on the end of a back to back, but they don't string together losses very much and have a clear edge on both ends of the ice here. The New York Rangers have been a hot and cold team this season and often struggle to find consistent offense. The Bruins have also beaten the Rangers in each of the last six meetings, which includes two wins this year. I'll lay the price with the Bruins on the road.
