The Blueshirts are 13-1-3 over their past 17 games and they have won four straight by a combined 8-2 margin – including a 2-0 win over lowly Buffalo yesterday.
Florida Panthers: Time is running out on the Cats 2014-15 NHL playoff aspirations
Posted as a 75/1 Stanley Cup favorite in the preseason, tied with Nashville, Carolina and Buffalo with the highest odds on the board, Florida has exceeded all expectations. That said, time is running out as the Panthers trail Washington by six points (Florida has one game in hand) in the race for the final playoff spot in the East. With 14 games left on their schedule, every game will have a playoff feel to it for Florida. Despite scratching out points in six of their last seven game (5-1-1) the Cats have lost ground as they were just two points out of the playoffs prior to their recent winning run.
Rangers vs Panthers NHL Prediction: Winning but losing ground in the process has to be discouraging for Florida. New York meanwhile wants all Stanley Cup playoff roads to head through the Big Apple and know they need to keep winning to make it happen. Expecting Florida will have some fight in them – we are going avoid the puck line here. Instead, we will roll with the Rangers and 500 unit wager on the Blueshirts money line posted on the SportsInteraction betting board.
