Friday NHL action gives us the New York Rangers visiting the Detroit Red Wings.
The New York Rangers have been playing their best hockey of the young season with four consecutive wins capped off by a 5-3 victory versus Montreal on Wednesday. Tomas Tater paced the Canadiens with a pair of markers with Max Domi scoring on the power play. Brendan Gallagher and Jeff Petry each logged two helpers while Carey Price took the loss for Montreal with five goals allowed on 27 shots.
New York was balanced on offense with Chis Krieder, Tony DeAngelo, Pavel Buchnevich, Neal Pionk and Mika Zibanejad each scoring. Kevin Hayes logged three assists and Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves to get the win for New York.
The Detroit Red Wings have been trying to rebound from a slow start to the season and have won four of five after downing Vancouver 3-2 in a SO on Wednesday. The Canucks led 2-0 on goals from Elias Pattersson and Ben Hutton while Jacob Markstrom fell to 6-3-1 with a 28 save effort.
Justin Abdelkader scored a power play goal in the second for the Red Wings with Gustav Nyquist lighting the lamp 1:37 in to the third. Dylan Larkin scored the only goal in the SO and Jimmy Howard made 40 saves for Detroit.
Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 overall and over is 4-1 in Rangers last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and under is 4-1-1 in Rangers last 6 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game. Red Wings are 0-5 in their last 5 Friday games and Red Wings are 4-0 in their last 4 when their opponent scores 5 goals or more in their previous game and over is 6-1-1 in Red Wings last 8 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game. Under is 6-0-2 in the last 8 meetings in Detroit and under is 17-5-5 in the last 27 meetings and Rangers are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings in Detroit.
Both teams are playing their best hockey right now so I’ll probably side with the under...
