What’s up everyone it’s your boy Lavoie here with a pick between two Eastern Conference juggernauts. In this one we see the Panther visit the big apple to take on the Rangers.
Both of these teams are Stanley Cup contenders without a doubt and have been playing at the top of their games. Both getting incredible production from their offenses and absolute stellar netminding.
I do like how the Panthers matchup against the Rangers just on the eye test, but let’s dig into this thing and see what side we should take.
The Rangers are absolutely rock solid at home with a 14-4-2 record but the Panthers have 8 wins on the road. The Panthers are a physical team that takes a million shots per game as I have documented many times but the Rangers are stellar on the back end.
New York Rangers
So first up let’s take a look at the offence for these Blueshirts. The Rangers are actually middle of the pack in goals per game with 2.98 but 8th in the league in shooting %.
So they make the most of their opportunities and rely heavily on their goaltending and defensive unit to keep their counterparts at bay. They rank 4th in the league in goals allowed with 2.59 per game.
So, although they are not getting the output this lineup should be getting whenever you’re giving up less on the season that is usually a good recipe for success. A lot of buzz surrounding this team going into the deadline about whether or not they may trade for some help, J.T. Miller has been linked a lot in the rumor mill.
I have written a lot about these Panthers as any of you who follow me know, and this team really has not changed since the last time we discussed them. They are keeping up pace in this loaded conference and look to be among the best.
The Rangers do carry the edge defensively in this one. The Panthers are 15th in the league in goals allowed per game with 2.82 and tied for 19th in shots allowed per game.
So despite being loaded with big names and some real good players on the blue line they actually get caved in analytically. They also give up a lot of penalty minutes, almost an average 10 per outing.
Their goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has bailed them out when they are struggling though, he has been electric this year for them. However as it stands right now a 3rd stringer is expected start, Jonas Johansson who has no NHL experience.

Free New York Rangers vs. Florida Panthers NHL Prediction:
I am going to lay the Rangers Moneyline in this one. The backup goalie is a big reason why, and at home with the best goaltender in the league. I actually don’t think the Rangers match up well with the Panthers on any other night but this just feels like a big moment for a back up at MSG with no experience.
Lay the Rangers juice at +125!
