The Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.
The Philadelphia Flyers will look to rebound from a 1-0 loss to the Islanders in their last game. James van Riemsdyk leads the Flyers in scoring with 35 points including 14 goals and 21 assists while Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek each have 33 points with Voracek logging a team-high 25 assists while Giroux has 11 goals and 22 helpers. Sean Couturier and Joel Farabee each have 31 points with Farabee logging a team-high 15 goals while Couturier has 13 goals and 18 apples. Travis Konecny also has 28 points with 19 assists as well this season. As a team, Philadelphia is averaging 2.8 goals on 29.8 shots with a 19.3% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.5 goals on 29.2 shots against with a 73.7% success rate on the penalty kill.
The New York Rangers will look to rebound from a 6-1 loss to the Islanders in their last game. Artemi Panarin leads the Rangers in scoring with 52 points including a team-high 36 assists while also posting 16 goals. Ryan Strome has 44 points with 14 goals and 30 assists while Adam Fox has 41 points with 36 assists of his own. Pavel Buchnevich and Mika Zibanejad each have double-digit goal and assist tallies while Chris Kreider has a team-high 19 goals this season. As a team, New York is averaging 3.3 goals on 29.2 shots with a 20.8% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.6 goals on 28.9 shots with an 85.1% success rate killing off penalties this season.
Philadelphia is 19-9 in their last 28 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. New York is 6-1 in their last 7 games as a home favorite and 4-1 in their last 5 games overall while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get the case that could be made for either side here as this is a rivalry matchup. The problem for the Flyers is that their defensive issues continue to linger and New York is running out of time to make up ground in the playoff race. I think the Rangers simply need this win more, so give me New York in this one.
