The Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
The Detroit Red Wings will look to build on back-to-back wins after a 3-0 win over the New York Islanders in their last game. Dylan Larkin leads Detroit in scoring with 14 points including a team-high 6 goals and 8 assists while Dominik Kubalik has 14 points as well with 5 goals and a team-high 9 assists. Ville Husso has gone 5-1-1 with a 2.17 GAA and a .941 save percentage while Alex Nedeljkovic is 1-2-1 with a 4.96 GAA and an .871 save percentage between the pipes for Detroit this season.
The New York Rangers will hope to bounce back after a 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins last time out. Artemi Panarin has a team-high 16 points with 5 goals and a team-high 11 assists while Mika Zibanejad has 14 points with a team-high 6 goals and 8 assists. Adam Fox has 10 points with 7 assists while Vincent Trocheck and Chris Kreider each have 9 points with 5 assists. Igor Shesterkin has gone 6-1-2 with a 2.41 GAA and a .916 save percentage while Jaroslav Halak is 0-3 with a 3.69 GAA and an .867 save percentage so far this season.
Detroit is 70-145 in their last 215 games overall and 25-80 in their last 105 road games while the over is 15-5-1 in their last 21 games played on no rest. New York is 38-18 in their last 56 home games and 2-7 in their last 9 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 13-4 in their last 17 games overall.
I get the case to be made for the Red Wings and the plus money here, but the problem here is that the Red Wings have struggled on the road, and I’m not sure that gets fixed here against the Rangers at MSG. On the other hand, the Rangers have been struggling to score in recent games and a lot of these meetings in the past have been low-scoring. Give me the under here.
