The Rangers will host a Bruins team tonight that’s on the second night of a back-to-back and that’s just a day removed from a walloping at the hands of the Minnesota Wild. Boston will be in tough to survive for the next few games as they are now down to their third- and fourth-string goalies.
- The total has gone OVER in 3 of the Bruins’ last 4 games against the Rangers.
- Malcolm Subban owns an .846 save percentage in 4 AHL starts this season.
- The total has gone OVER in 3 of the Rangers’ last 4 games with 2 days off between games.
Malcolm Subban did not fare well in the Bruins’ net last night and definitely won’t be getting the night off against the Rangers tonight – given he gets the start. New York has peppered opposing netminders with the fifth most shots per game so far and will be drooling at the prospect of playing a goalie tonight that has allowed 6 goals on just 22 shots in his brief NHL career.
There will be a vast difference between the experience of each team’s starting goalies tonight as the Rangers will roll with the 11-year-veteran Henrik Lundqvist in net. King Henrik had a slow start to the year but has now posted two strong starts in a row and will not have to be spectacular to get another win tonight.
The favorite in this series has won the last five matchups and I’m going to have a tough time betting on a team that’s playing the bad half of a back-to-back, playing in a hostile rink and that will be relying on a below average AHL goaltender.
