Randy’s Free Pick
The Vegas Golden Knights are going through a rough week, and they're not nearly as trustworthy on the road as they are a home. The New York Rangers have protected home ice as of late, and they've played their best hockey overall over the last month. At home, I'll lay the juice with the Rangers. Vegas has to get out of this funk to be trusted in spots like this.
