The New York Rangers need to get their act together as they continue to play inconsistent hockey, but their defense gives them a fighting chance every night. The San Jose Sharks and their below average offense is going to have issues finding the back of the net here and playing at home hasn’t helped them dating back to last season. Give me the Rangers and the somewhat reasonable juice.
