NHL Stanley Cup Championship Race Nears Full Flight Tonight

Rangers vs Flyers: Fierce rivalry hits another gear

It’s Broadway vs. Broad Street as the New York versus Philadelphia rivalry heats up in Stanley Cup action at Madison Square Garden Arena tonight. Dating back to 1974, this is the eleventh time the Flyers and Rangers will battle in the NHL postseason – though the first time since 1997. The Flyers own a 6-4 playoff series lead and these clubs split their regular season matches 2-2 with each team winning their two games on home ice.

Home teams dominant during 2013-14 NHL regular season series

Philadelphia opened the NYR vs PHI NHL regular season series with a 2-1 home win over New York in October. The Rangers fought back with 4-1 victory at The Garden in January before the clubs split 4-2 and 3-1 games in Philadelphia and New York in March. Both of the March games had a playoff feel as the Rangers and Flyers battled for third place in the Metropolitan Division down the stretch – a race won by New York.

New York vs. Philadelphia Series Opening Prediction & Online Betting Prices

Of the eight series in the quarterfinals round, the Rangers vs Flyers war is the one we most expect to go a full seven games. New York, with Henrik “King” Lundqvist, has an edge in the nets while the Flyers have a slight edge in scoring and size. If the games in this series make our betting card, as tonight’s match-up does, we are taking the pucks. We’ll wager 500 units on the Flyers puck line at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook.
