The Rangers are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Metropolitan. The Flyers are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The Rangers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 18-7 in the last 25 meetings overall.
The New York Rangers have to win in Phill eventually and right now the Flyers are as cold as ice. I like the Rangers to get things going on the road here.
