The New York Rangers look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The New York Rangers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 20.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with 19 goals, Adam Fox has 36 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 130 shots on goal.

The Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Rangers are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 6-1 in their last 7 home games. The over is 11-3 in Flyers last 14 overall. The over is 7-1 in Rangers last 8 home games. The Flyers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in New York and 12-4 in the last 16 meetings. The favorite is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers have won four of the seven meetings against the Rangers this season, which includes a win last night. However, the Flyers have had issues stringing wins together this season and have had no recent success winning on the end of back to backs. The New York Rangers have been easily the more consistent team this season and have played their best hockey on their home ice. It's also tough for a club to beat a team twice in as many days. Give me the Rangers and the rather cheap price.
