Both teams going into this game tonight have been average at best. However, I’m going with the NY Rangers tonight. I don’t like the Flyers not having Claude Giroux in the lineup. I think it hurts them in a big way. Second thing I don’t like about the Flyers is the fact that they’ve been bad on the road as of late. 2-5 away from home is the Flyers. Last thing is the fact that Rangers have dominated the Flyers on their home ice and I judging for what we have seen so far this season I don’t see why that won’t happen again tonight. Take the Rangers!
