Ice picks: Sunday's best NHL bets

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Rangers

New York peppered Tampa Bay goalie Mike Smith with 41 shots, but mustered just a 2-1 victory in Prague Saturday. The Rangers even needed a man advantage to notch the winner in the final six minutes of the game.

The barrage of shots is a plus for New York’s revamped offense, who will soon be converting those chances into goals as they get more comfortable with their linemates. Their biggest addition, forward Markus Naslund, is off to a good start after scoring the opener for his new club.

Pick: Rangers -116


Ottawa Senators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Pens center Tyler Kennedy put on a show for Swedish fans in Pittsburgh’s 4-3 overtime-win over the Ottawa Senators Saturday. The rookie netted the opener 40 seconds into the game and finished off the Sens with a deflected wristshot with just 25 seconds remaining in the extra frame.

The Penguins picked up their fifth straight win over Ottawa dating back to last year’s postseason series sweep.

Senators goaltender Martin Gerber wasn’t sharp between the pipes, stopping 26 of 30 shots, and allowed a couple soft goals in his first regular season start.

Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins -105
