Bruins vs Rangers Prediction Breakdown

Both of these teams will be on the second game of a back to back, but New York is coming off of a win and will be at home. The Rangers were out played by the Flyers on Friday, but they were able to sneak away with the win. Boston suffered their second regulation loss of the season on Friday, with both of the losses coming against Detroit. These two teams are very good this season and this should be a great game, but I am going to take New York at home. The Rangers are rolling right now and they are 5-1-0 at home. Take New York here.
