NHL Predictions: San Jose Sharks vs. New York Rangers? 10/23/17

Can the New York Rangers avoid another loss when they play host to the San Jose Sharks tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Rangers are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -120 to win, while the Sharks are listed with a money line of +100 to prevail. The over/under total for the game has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

San Jose is coming off a 5-3 loss at the Islanders on Saturday. San Jose is now 3-4 on the season and 1-1 on the road. The Sharks are scoring 2.71 goals per game while allowing 3.00 per contest. Logan Couture has six goals and two assists to lead the Sharks while Kevin Labanc has three goals with two assists. Martin Jones has played in five games in net and is 3-2 on the season with a 2.64 GAA and a .915 save percentage.

New York is coming off a 4-2 win at home over the Rangers on Saturday. That snapped a five-game losing streak. New York is now 2-5-2 on the season and 2-3-2 at home.

Bet on Sharks vs. Rangers

The home team has had the edge here, winning four straight in this series. Despite recent struggles, New York has won 22 of its last 30 against Western Conference opponents and 29-11 in its last 40 against Pacific Division. San Jose is just 3-9 in their last 12 road games and 1-5 in their last six when playing on one day of rest. The public is slightly behind the Rangers and I am going to side with New York at home. Look for the Rangers to bounce back tonight.
