Panthers vs. Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Rangers here. I get that the slide for the Panthers won’t last forever, but until it stops
it’s hard to get behind the Panthers when another one of the NHL’s elite is on the other side.
The Rangers are finding ways to win as of late, and frankly the Rangers aren’t a team I feel like
stepping in front of right now. Give me the Rangers in this one.
