New York vs Philadelphia: Metropolitan Division Foes Battle in the Big Apple

New York vs Philadelphia: Metropolitan Division Foes Battle in the Big Apple
Teams on a short turnaround clash as the BetOnline NHL betting board lights up early on Saturday. First meets near-worst for a Metropolitan Division rivalry duel when the New York Rangers host the Philadelphia Flyers for a matinee tilt. The Rangers have dropped two straight games while the Flyers are coming off a 3-2 overtime win at home versus Nashville. Puck drop is scheduled for 1:35 PM ET on November 28, 2015, at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY.

New York Rangers: Aiming to avoid a third straight loss

Following a red-hot 11-1-0 recent run, New York has dropped consecutive contests as they were crushed 5-1 by the Montreal Canadiens at home on Wednesday and then dropped a 4-3 decision to the Bruins in Boston yesterday. Sitting with a 16-5-2 overall record, the Rangers have a slim one point lead on the Washington Capitals in the race for first in the NHL Metropolitan Division. Playing back-to-back games has not been a problem for the Blueshirts as they are 5-0 in that scenario so far this season. The Rangers 70 goals scored is the sixth best total in the National Hockey League.

Philadelphia Flyers: Season long search for scoring punch on offense continues

Philadelphia rolls into the Big Apple after winning for just the fourth time during their last 16 contests. Sitting dead last in the NHL with 42 goals scored, a lack offense continues to be a huge problem in Philadelphia. The scoring drought in November has been particularly disturbing as the Flyers have posted a 4-6-3 record and have been outscored by a 36-21 margin this month. This is the second of four meetings this season between these long time NHL Eastern Conference rivals. The Flyers posted a 3-2 shootout win in the first contest back on October 24 in Philadelphia. 

Philadelphia vs New York NHL Prediction: With an edge going to the Blueshirts, we get a battle of the backups here as the Flyers Steve Mason (3-7 GAA 3.00) will face the Rangers Antti Raanta (4-0 GAA 1.20) in the netminding matchup today. Top to bottom, New York is the better team and they are 10-2-1 on home ice this season. The road has not been kind to the Flyers as they are 3-6-2 in contests played away from the Wells Fargo Center. Ride the Rangers with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted at the sports wagering website.
