Friday evening on the NHL ice and the Metro Division will square off with the Pacific Division as the New York Rangers grapple with the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta. The Rangers are off a 4-1 loss at Vancouver, while the Flames are off a 9-4 home win over the Devils.

Rangers Fall To Canucks On The Road

The New York Rangers cannot wait for the season to end. They come in having lost eight of their last nine games to fall to 28-42 on the year and 12 points out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers check in off a 4-1 loss to the Canucks on the road and they have now gone a miserable 11-23 out on the road for the year and they have averaged 2.65 gpg and have allowed 3.82 gpg in those games. They must now try and take down a Calgary team that has crushed their last two opponents at home. Good luck there. Scoring their lone goal was Pavel Buchnevich, which was his 16th of the year.

Absorbing the loss to the Canucks was Henrik Lundqvist, who allowed three goals on 27 shot attempts to fall to 18-28 with a 2.99 GAA on the year, including 7-13 with a 3.36 GAA on the road. In his career, he has gone 8-4 with a 2.63 GAA against the Flames. The Rangers check in ranked 17th in power play conversions at 19.4% and 25th in penalty kill at 78.3%.

Flames Hang Nine On The Devils

The Calgary Flames will give up goals at home, but they will also score plenty and that was the case in their last game as they beat the New Jersey Devils at home by a score of 9-4. That win was on the heels of a 6-3 home win over the Golden Knights. They have a shot at another big win as they are taking on a poor New York road team that has allowed 3.82 gpg on the road. Calgary is currently trailing the San Jose Sharks by one point for first place in the Pacific Division. Johnny Gaudreau led the attack against the Devils as he scored three times and now has 33 goals on the year. He also had three assists in the game as well for a total of six points. Derek Ryan also had a good game with two goals and he now has nine on the year.

Grabbing the win against the Devils was David Rittich, who stopped 22 of the 26 shots he faced to improve to 24-12 with a 2.69 GAA on the year, including 11-5 with a 3.52 GAA here at home. He is 1-0 with a 1.00 GAA against the Rangers in his career. Calgary has gone 22-12 here at home for the year and they have averaged 4.24 gpg and have allowed 3.29 gpg in those games. The Flames check in ranked 10th in power play conversions at 21.8% and 20th in penalty kill at 79.7%.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Flames have won their last two games by a15-7 count and they have now averaged 2.24 gpg here at home for the year. The Rangers are one of the worst road teams in the league at 11-23 and they have allowed 3.82 gpg in those games. This is not a good matchup at all for the Rangers. They will score some, but the Flames will score a lot more. The Rangers are 12-39 in their last 51 after scoring two goals or less in their previous game, while the Flames are 28-12 in their last 40 games as a favorite. Take Calgary to win this one easily.

Prediction: Calgary -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

If I could rate this play higher, I would. I’m a bit shocked to see it at just six, considering the fact that Calgary home games have averaged 7.53 gpg and New York Road games have averaged 6.47 gpg. Calgary has scored 15 goals in their last two games and they have averaged 4.24 gpg here at home, while the Rangers have allowed 3.82 gpg on the road. The Rangers are not a great offensive team, but the Flames have allowed 3.29 gpg here at home. The Over is 12-4 in New York’s last 16 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation and 22-7-3 in Calgary’s last 32 games as a home favorite.

Prediction: Over 6
