Rangers vs Bruins: Eastern Conference NHL Foes Battle in the Big Apple

Rangers vs Bruins: Eastern Conference NHL Foes Battle in the Big Apple
A light night in the National Hockey League is our focus today as we preview and predict the New York vs Boston battle. Separated by a lone point in the Eastern Conference, the Rangers and Bruins are both looking to improve on their playoff positioning. Puck drop is slated for 8:00 PM ET on February 4, 2015, from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

Boston Bruins: Running hot in the new calendar year

A sluggish season start is quickly becoming a thing of the past in Beantown as the Bruins rolled through January with a sparkling 8-1-3 record. The hot streak, during which Boston took down Cup contenders such as the Penguins, Lightning and Islanders, included a 3-0 shut victory at home over the Rangers two weeks ago. Boston has not lost a road contest since the end of December as they are 4-0-2 in their last six contests away from the TD Garden arena. A nice mix of defense, supported by steady scoring, has fueled the Bruins winning run as the B’s have outscored their opponents by a 33-21 margin over their last 13 games.

New York Rangers: On a roll of their own as the playoff race heats up

Though they have stumbled a bit recently, following a white hot 13-1-0 run, New York is solidly placed in the NHL playoff race. The Rangers, who are 4-4-0 over their last eight games, are fresh off back-to-back blowout wins at home over Carolina (4-1) and Florida (6-3) and they have posted a 16-7-3 record at The Garden this season. Though the numbers a little skewed, due to New York playing the fewest games of any team thus far, the Rangers (48 GP) have quietly moved to within one goal of Montreal’s league low 114 goals allowed. New York also lights the lamp consistently as the Blueshirts are 6th overall with a 2.98 GPG scoring average. Bruins vs Rangers Prediction: We get a rock solid goaltending matchup here as Henrik Lundqvist (2.25 GGA) is slated to face Tuukka Rask (2.31 GAA) in a brilliant battle between the pipes. That is one of the prime reasons to expect a close contest tonight. Sticking with our need to avoid greed, we are going to back the Bruins with a 500 unit wager on the puck line price posted at the SportsInteraction sportsbook.
