Detroit Red Wings at New York Rangers (-145, 5)

The New York Rangers became the first team in the East to clinch a playoff spot with Tuesday’s win over New Jersey and look ready to fight to hold on to the No. 1 seed.

Brandon Prust, Stu Bickel and Mike Rupp all dropped their gloves just three seconds into Tuesday’s game, setting the tone for the club’s 4-2 victory.

"We've really worked hard all year for this opportunity," Brandon Dubinsky told reporters after recording a goal and an assist. "I think from the get-go we said the playoffs wasn't our goal. We want home-ice advantage. We want to put ourselves in a good position going into the playoffs, and more importantly, we want to try to be playing our best hockey going in."

That win was just New York’s third in eight games, but could be the victory that the club needs for the final push of the regular season.

The Rangers also catch a break with Detroit’s starting goaltender Jimmy Howard out again with a groin injury.

Pick: Rangers

St. Louis Blues at Anaheim Ducks (+115, 5)

The trip back to St. Louis would have felt a lot longer if the Blues didn’t come away with a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay Saturday.

St. Louis had dropped consecutive games on the road, but managed to blanket Tampa Bay’s attack in a textbook Ken Hitchcock victory.

"We know that we've got a ways to go and that we can't take nights off like we did before tonight ... the last four or five games," forward T. J. Oshie told reporters. "That wasn't the way that we play and the way we can win. ... (This win) as a whole, we made a big jump as a team."

While the Blues are trying to lock down first place overall in the league, you just don’t know what you’re going to get from the Ducks these days. They made a good run for the playoffs but look to be running out of steam.

Pick: Blues
