Philadelphia Flyers vs New York Rangers 03/01/2020 Betting Odds:
Philadelphia Flyers barged into the second spot of the Metropolitan Division standings, thanks to a season-high five-game victory surge aided by the Pittsburgh Penguins losing six in a row. The 5-2 win over the Rangers on Friday snapped the New York-based squad’s own five-game winning streak and pulled Philly to within three points behind the division-best Washington Capitals. Aiming for a sixth straight win, the Flyers will bank on momentum to finish off the Rangers and capture their ninth win in 10 games.
Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 61, G 22, A 36, PTS 58), Sean Couturier (GP 64, G 20, A 37, PTS 57), Jakub Voracek (GP 64, G 12, A 38, PTS 50).
New York Rangers
Adding salt to the injury of having their winning streak snapped both overall and on the road, the loss on Friday also denied the Rangers a chance to seize the second wild card in the Eastern Conference. To make things worse, top-line forward Chris Kreider, who just signed a fresh seven-year $45.5 million deal, is now said to be out indefinitely after he suffered a fractured foot on a block play during the first period of the match. With that, the team will have to instigate the next man up mentality to thwart the Flyers from thrashing them anew.
Players to watch: Artemi Panarin (GP 63, G 32, A 56, PTS 88), Mika Zibanejad (GP 51, G 30, A 32, PTS 62), Ryan Strome (GP 64, G 18, A 40, PTS 58).
Philadelphia Flyers vs New York Rangers Betting Predictions
Flyers are 5-0 in their last 5 overall.
Over is 6-0 in Rangers last 6 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game.
Flyers vs Rangers Betting Picks
The Flyers are beaming with so much confidence and the Rangers will just have to accept their fate on Sunday afternoon. Philly is smelling the blood of Washington atop the Metropolitan, and that’s bad news for the Rangers. The Flyers will be a step closer to that goal as they will sweep the home team for their sixth consecutive win.
Score Prediction: Flyers 4, Rangers 3.
