New York Rangers Betting Analysis

New York continues their homestand after one of their more stirring victories on Monday. The Rangers needed overtime to defeat the Calgary Flames 5-4 in what may have been one of the most exciting games of the season.

Usually, the big efforts come from the top line but the kid line did some carrying of their own on Monday.  Filip Chytil scored again and then Alexis Lafreniere tallied in overtime. That supplemented Mika Zibanejad’s two goals in the overtime triumph. It became a back-and-forth contest which truly felt like a playoff game.

Igor Shesterkin stayed on the bench as Jaroslav Halak got the start for the Rangers. He stopped 28 of 32 shots in the win. Like we said, Filip Chytil scored twice along with Zibanejad. That gave Chytil 18 goals on the season. He possesses an outside chance at netting 30 this season. At home, New York represents a team with one dangerous offense.

Vancouver Canucks Betting Analysis

The Vancouver Canucks traded their captain to the New York Islanders last week. Vancouver knew the writing was on the wall. Also, do not be surprised to see a few more moves during the next several weeks.

The Canucks, even without Bo Horvat, still can put up some goals offensively. They made things interesting in Newark on Monday night.

The Canucks play a dangerous game and teams know it too. It is that fact which makes Vancouver difficult to match up with. Unfortunately, the Canucks play a deficient brand of defense that allows way too many scoring chances. That results in goals allowed that can come in bunches. No lead is safe in a lot of their contests.

Worse, not having a healthy Thatcher Demko cements the most obvious statement. The last line of defense in Vancouver is like an abyss. Odds to win the Vezina Trophy are out the window when it comes to the Canucks.

Goaltending is more an act of survival as the team defense ranks one of the worst in the NHL.

Canucks vs Rangers Prediction

Now, the Canucks are 3-6-1 in their last ten games including the loss in Newark on Monday. This game tonight gets top billing both in the US and Canada. It is a matchup more interesting because J.T. Miller loves playing the Rangers. Also, there figures to be quite a few goals scored.

Canucks vs Rangers Same-Game Parlay Picks

Pick Odds
New York Moneyline -250
Over 6.5 Goals -110
PARLAY ODDS  +165

The game expects to be almost as entertaining as the contest on Monday between New York and Calgary. Arguably, more scoring chances may be even more likely.

Vancouver showcased their offense against New Jersey on Monday. Can they do it again on Wednesday night? Six goals or less feels in jeopardy on Wednesday, but something to consider may be New York’s ability to run away with this game in the third period. Unlike Monday, Vancouver may run out of gas.

Pick: New York -1.5 goals (+105)
