The New York Rangers go to Detroit, Michigan, to take on the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday at the Little Caesars Arena. The Rangers are coming off of a two-game losing streak, losing to the Columbus Blue Jackets and the New York Islanders. The loss over the Blue Jackets snapped a two-game winning streak, as the Rangers had two straight wins over the New York Islanders, out-scoring the Islanders 9-4 in the two games.

The Rangers are 23-21-4 on the season and tied for second-lowest in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers have scored plenty of goals with Artemi Panarin being a great new addition, leading the team in points, goals, and assists. Panarin has The Rangers are decent on offense, but their trouble comes on the defensive end. Of course, Panarin was selected for the NHL All-Star Game this week.

The Detroit Red Wings are coming off of a six-game losing streak, as the Red Wings continue to struggle and go further down as the worst NHL team.

The Detroit Red Wings are 12-35-4 on the season. The Red Wings have the worst record in the NHL, and there is a 17 point difference between the Red Wings and the second-worst team in the entire league. The Detroit Red Wings are the worst team on offense and the worst team on defense. To put it point blank, the Detroit Red Wings are having a horrible season, and they likely want to continue to lose, to get the number one pick in the NHL draft, and attempt to rebuild this team.

New York is 31-17 ATS this season
Rangers are 7-0 in their last 7 in the second game of a home-and-home situation.
Detroit is 20-31 ATS this season
Red Wings are 20-43 in their last 63 games playing on 0 days rest.

The New York Rangers are certainly not playing some of their best hockey, as they've been very inconsistent over the last few games. However, the Detroit Red Wings seem to be in such a rut, as they continue to lose games. It may be in the best interest of the Detroit Red Wings to continue to lose games as they can have the number one pick secured as they continue to fall. I think that the New York Rangers will take the opportunity of playing a Detroit Red Wings team that is terrible at this moment and win this game comfortably. Final Score Prediction, New York Rangers win 4-1.
