Vancouver Canucks vs New York Rangers prediction

We have two above average teams here, so the edge for me goes to the New York Rangers at home. The Rangers are 13-5 on their home ice this season, with wins in 3 of their last 4 tries. The Rangers are also 3-0 against the Canucks in their last 3 meetings, scoring at least 4 goals in every game. Should be a fun one, but the Rangers at home is where I lean with the reasonable price.
