On the second night of a back-to-back after a game against Tampa Bay, the New York Rangers continue a road-trip and head further south in Florida to take on the Panthers.
Florida, with losses in five of the last six games, needs a win and needs one now if it is going to have any chance of making the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
New York Rangers
Sitting 3rd in the NHL in scoring, the New York Rangers have had very little problem winning games thanks to a stellar offense. The Rangers have 210 goals on the season and have been pretty consistent on the offensive end this season.
The team has had a tough stretch recently, losing four of the last five games. The team has just 10 goals in the last five games and isn’t playing enough defense to win despite the lack of offense. The Rangers will need to step up on offense in order to beat Florida.
Right wing Michael Grabner has been wonderful for the team, putting up 26 goals and 10 assists this season. He doesn’t have a single point over his last five games and may not even play on Tuesday. He has sat out the last three games with a hip injury.
Left wing Chris Kreider will need to step up to help win on Tuesday. He has 24 goals and 19 assists, including two goals and an assist.
The Panthers are still finding themselves now that the team is healthy and free of injury, losing five of the last six games despite having a great team on paper, one that has Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau back in the lineup.
This is a more complete Florida team, since the return of Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov. In 13 games this season, Huberdeau has five goals and seven assists.
Barkov has been playing very well recently also. He has 16 goals and 23 assists on the year, including a goal and two assists over his last five games.
Center Jon Marchessault has been the glue guy for this team all season, through everyone’s injuries and the coaching changes. Marchessault has 18 goals and 19 assists this season, including a goal and an assist in his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- New York is 1-4 ATS in the last five games
- Florida is 1-5 SU in the last six games
