Knights vs. Rangers Pick

NHL Predictions: Vegas Golden Knights vs. New York Rangers 10/31/17

Can the New York Rangers hold off the Vegas Golden Knights when the two hit the ice tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Rangers are the clear favorite tonight, as they are getting odds of -220 to win, while the Rangers are listed with a money line of +180 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

Vegas is coming off a 6-3 loss last night on the road against the Islanders. It was just their second loss of the new season, as they are off to an 8-2 start. The Knights are 2-1 on the road. Vegas is scoring 3.70 goals per game this year while allowing 2.50 per game. James Neal has seven goals and three assists to lead the Knights while David Perron has three goals and four assists. Injuries are becoming an issue in net as Marc-Andre Fleury is already out and Oscar Dansk is questionable tonight due to a lower body injury. Malcolm Subban is also unavailable due to a lower body injury, so the Knights could be down to a fourth goalie.

New York is coming off a 5-4 loss at Montreal on Saturday night to fall to 3-7-2 on the season. The Rangers are 3-4-2 at home this year. When it comes to scoring, New York is averaging just 2.83 goals per game while allowing 3.50 per contest. The Rangers are being led by Mika Zibanejad, who has seven goals and three assists. J.T. Miller also has 10 points on two goals and eight assists. Henrik Lundqvist is just 2-4-2 in net with a 3.12 GAA and a .900 save percentage.

Bet on Knights vs. Rangers

This is the first meeting between these two this season. The Knights are coming off a loss last night and have major questions when it comes to goaltending. While the Rangers haven’t been great in net either, I trust Lundqvist much more than anyone Vegas will have to offer. New York is 23-9 in its last 32 games against Western Conference opponents. The public is behind the Knights tonight, but I just don’t see this working out well.
