  • The New York Rangers came into the second half of their season with a win over the Aves in OT and now sit at 31-16-3! New York also beat the Senators by a score of 7-2 in the game prior to Colorado, but did lose to Vegas and San Jose before that. The Rangers are scoring over 3 goals per game and they are allowing about 3 goals against per game, their standing at a 27% hit rate on the power play and 83.1% on the penalty kill. Artemi Panarin has led New York with 31 goals, 36 assists, and 196 shots on goal. The projected starting goalie for New York is Igor Shesterkin, who is 19-12-1 this year qwith a 2.86 goals against average and a .899 save percentage. This is a great team who play extremely well at home!

The Plugs Game Prediction


  • I have to back the Rangers here at home with such a good price! I will give Tampa Bay their well deserved flowers for ending the first half of the season playing some very good hockey! They have won their last three games by a score of 6-3, but this will be their first game since January 27th. New York played Colorado on Monday night and they were able to pick up a solid overtime win. The Rangers are 16-7-0 at home and Tampa Bay is only 10-13-2 on the road. I think New York has a pretty big advantage in this game, for the simple fact of them being able to play a game as soon as they have after the All-Star break, that means they should be ready to go for this game. It's no secret that Tampa Bay has struggled on the road this season and I don’t think it is going to get any easier here. We will take the Rangers at home at a good price!
