Free New York Rangers vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
New York has gotten the best of the Flames in their previous 10 games with a 7-2-1 record. The over/under has gone 4-5 throughout the stretch.
During the 10-game span, the Rangers have put the puck in the net for an average of 3.10 goals a night while giving up an average of 2.50 to Calgary
I like the Flames winning in this one. They’ve had some problems winning on their own rink the previous six games with a 1-4-1 record. Playing the Rangers gives them an opportunity to start the new year with a solid win at home.
Both teams are giving up over three goals a game, but I have a hard time taking the Rangers with Georgiev in the net. My money’s on Calgary at home. Islanders keep it close though.
