The Flyers are 6-13 in their last 19 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-12 in their last 15 overall. The Rangers are 36-17 in their last 53 home games and 39-15 in their last 54 games playing on 0 days rest. The Flyers are 7-20 in the last 27 meetings in New York and 9-20 in the last 29 meetings oveall.
The Flyers are still in one of those slumps in which they're finding every possible way to lose. The Rangers are still one of the hotter teams in the league and have very tough in MSG. I like the Rangers by at least two goals to give our wager more value.
