Rangers vs Flyers Betting Prediction

New York comes into this game as one of the hottest teams in the NHL and they are looking to secure their 10th straight victory. The Rangers have scored at least five goals in three of their last four games and they are 18-9-3 on the road this year. Philadelphia is 14-12-2 at home, but they have lost two of their last three games coming into this matchup. The Flyers have had pretty solid defense and goaltending this year, but their scoring has been a bit inconsistent. On the other side, New York is playing great in both ends of the ice and I can’t go against them here. Take the Rangers to win again.
