Blues vs. Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Rangers here. New York’s had a couple of tough losses lately, but the fact is this team’s played sound defensive hockey for the better part of the season, especially as of late outside of those defeats. That’s not going to work for a St. Louis team that’s struggling to score right now and I think this is a perfect get right spot for New York. Give me the Rangers here.
