The New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers meet Thursday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The New York Rangers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The New York Rangers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 16.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with 16 goals, Artemi Panarin has 20 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 91 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 86.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Igor Shesterkin has given up 31 goals on 393 shots faced and Alexandar Georgiev has given up 33 goals on 319 shots.
The Philadelphia Flyers need a win here after losing six of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 18.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Farabee leads Philadelphia with 14 goals, Jakub Voracek has 20 assists and James van Riemsdyk has 76 shots on goal.

The Rangers are 9-2 in their last 11 Thursday games and 5-11 in their last 16 games following a win. The Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-0-2 in Rangers last 6 road games. The over is 8-1 in Flyers last 9 overall. The Rangers are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Philadelphia and 3-11 in the last 14 meetings. The favorite is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings.
The New York Rangers are playing the better hockey over the last couple of weeks and just beat the snot out of the Flyers last week, 9-0. The Philadelphia Flyers are heading in the wrong direction right now and their defense hasn't provided much confidence. With all that said, the Flyers are still one of the more profitable teams dating back to last season and it's not often you get them at prices this reasonable. I wouldn't write off the Flyers just yet. I'll take a stab with the Flyers at home and the cheap price.
