Ottawa is zeroing in on the top draft pick percentages as their 62 points are 5 fewer than the Kings with just 3 games to play. Even with the incentive to ‘tank’ the Senators have still gone a respective 5-5 over their last 10.
The Senators actually come in to Wednesday’s game winners of 3 of their last 5. They’ve been very profitable to bettors, winning a 4-2 game over Toronto (+185) as well as a 4-0 win vs. Buffalo (+100) and 4-3 against Edmonton (+220).
One thing about the Senators recent “success” is that 6 of their last 9 games have been at home. The Sens are just 10-27-1 going away this season. Even so, the Ottawa offense has looked good scoring 4 goals in 4 of 7 games.
Anders Nilsson would have no problem receiving some offensive support in net as he’s 3-3 over his last 6. Even so, 5 of 6 opponents were held to 3 goals or less and the New York offense isn’t exactly potent.
New York Rangers
The Rangers are in NHL no man’s land as their 75 points are 18 below the wild card front runners but 13 more than the worst records in the league. New York doesn’t have much to play – or lose – for with 3 games left and are kind of just “there.”
New York has won 2 out of 3 however – an impressive SO at Philadelphia (+145) but then losing to New Jersey 2-4 (-100) although it was on the second end of a back-to-back. New York is back home, where they beat St. Louis 4-2 (+195) in their last game at the Garden.
The Rangers offense hasn’t done much lately, being held to 2 goals or less in 7 of 10. The O/U is six for Wednesday’s contest and somehow 4 of 6 NYR games have gone over.
The reason Wednesday could be another solid ‘over’ play is because Henrik Lundvqist is expected in goal for the Rangers. The veteran has lost 5 straight, allowing 19 goals total over that span.

Free Ottawa Senators vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
There’s no value in New York at -167 but with Lundqvist in goal Ottawa should be able to net some pucks. Same with the Rangers back at home.
