The Rangers on the other hand probably won’t be contending for Lord Stanley’s cup, but they are without a doubt better with Artemi Panarin who they recently got back and are not an easy win so the Flyers will need to bring their A-game here.
The Philadelphia Flyers are only 3 and 5 in the last 8 games which has the out of the playoffs at the moment, so picking up these points against one of the lower teams in the division will be of high priority.
They did pick up the win in the first game of this 2 game series by a score of 5-4, so the Rangers certainly made them work for it, as Jakub Voracek needed to have a big game scoring a goal to go along with 2 helpers.
One of the reasons that the Flyers were able to pick up that win, which most people won’t talk about, is the fact that the Flyers dominated the face-off circles beating the Rangers by a margin of 11. Carter Hart is set to be between the posts for the Flyers on Wednesday and honestly that has to make the Rangers forwards pretty excited as Hart is giving up 3.61 goals per game this year.
New York Rangers
Artemi Panarin was able to score a goal and add two assists in that last game, as ”breadman” continues on where he left off before his off the ice issues put him out of the lineup and away from the team.The one spot Panarin will really make a difference for this team is on the power-play, as the Rangers are only converting on 14.1 percent of their opportunities with the extra man.
Pavel Buchnevich has been awesome for the Rangers in 2021, but unfortunately for the Rangers he will not be available for this game, as he has been entered into the NHL’s Covid 19 protocol.
Alexandar Georgiev is the confirmed starter for the Rangers and he has been better than his numbers suggest here and he should be highly motivated and ready to go here in his team’s efforts against the Flyers.

Free Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
I do think the New York Rangers have a decent chance of exacting revenge and picking up the win here, but I also think the much better bet is the over, as neither of these two blue-lines are all that great, and we can have more confidence in the Rangers offense with Panarin back in the lineup.
I also like that we are getting this line at 6, as opposed to 6.5, as that would be the point where I believe the bet would probably not make sense, although we did just have 9 goals in this matchup in the last game and there is not too much reason this one should be any different.
