New York vs Calgary: Rangers Host Flames at Madison Square Garden

New York vs Calgary: Rangers Host Flames at Madison Square Garden

New York Rangers: Up and down season so far in the Big Apple

Following a 3-0 start to their season, two of the victories were against the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets, New York is 2-2-2 over their last six games and their overall 5-2-2 record has the Rangers placed second in the NHL Metropolitan Division. After their hot start, New York experienced a power shortage as they were outscored 9-2 during a 0-2-1 run. The Blueshirts came back to life with home wins over San Jose (4-0) and Arizona (4-1) prior to dropping a 3-2 shoot out decision versus Philadelphia last night. New York had a rough night on defense as the Flyers peppered goaltender Henrik Lundqvist with a season high 48 shots on goal. The Rangers are on a 5-2 recent run versus the Flames and they won both matchups last season 1-0 at home and 5-2 in Calgary.

Calgary Flames: Regressing after their miracle run during the 2014-15 NHL season 

Heart and Hartley have not been enough for Calgary so far this season as the Flames have been flickering during a 2-5 start. Following 13 wins when trailing after two periods last year, Calgary has dug holes they haven’t been able to climb out of this season. Calgary is fairly messy from the top to the bottom as very few players are pulling their fair share of the load. On offense, both Calgary wins have come in overtime and when they out-shot their opponent (78-59) while the Flames have been out-shot (160-111) and the defense (entire team) played poorly in all five of their losses. 

New York vs Calgary NHL Prediction: One of the big problems in Calgary has been in between the pipes as the Flames were carrying three goaltenders prior to waiving Karri Ramo who cleared the wire and was sent down to AHL Stockton. The move doesn’t do much as Jonas Hiller and Joni Ortio are both mediocre netminders. Hiller (2-2 GAA 3.31) gets the start tonight against Rangers sophomore Antti Raanta who is spelling Lundqvist for the second time this season. Raanta was solid stopping 22 shots during a 4-0 win over the Sharks in his first start. After getting outshot by a 83-66 margin in their last two contests, plus not having King Henry in goal, we expect the Rangers will tighten things up against Calgary tonight. Back the Blueshirts with a 300 unit wager on the money line price posted on the NHL betting board at SportsInteraction.
