The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers meet Monday in NHL action at Madison Square Garden.
The Philadelphia Flyers need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 19.5 percent of their power play opportunities. James van Riemsdyk leads Philadelphia with 12 goals, Jakub Voracek has 15 assists and Kevin Hayes has 66 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 73.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 20 goals on 192 shots faced and Brian Elliott has allowed 29 goals on 301 shots.
The New York Rangers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The New York Rangers are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 15.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with 14 goals, Artemi Panarin has 14 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 74 shots on goal.

The Flyers are 15-7 in their last 22 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 7-3 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 6-1 in Flyers last 7 overall. The under is 20-8-2 in Rangers last 30 overall. The Flyers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in New York and 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers are going through a bit of a rough patch right now, but they've still played some of their best hockey this season on the road and they've won 10 of the last 12 meetings against the Rangers. The New York Rangers have had issues stringing wins together this season and the offense goes through serious droughts. You shouldn't be fading the Flyers after a rough week. I'll lay the cheap price with the road team.
