The New York Rangers have been better than expected this season and they've had great success lately in the favorite role. The New Jersey Devils continue to pile up the losses, have shown very little improvement on the defensive side and playing at home hasn't helped. The Rangers have been quite profitable this season and they've outscored the Devils 12-4 in the last two meetings this season. Give me the Rangers and the somewhat reasonable price, as I don't want to get burned laying the PL in this spot.
