Rangers down Capitals
New York managed to slow down Washington at home Wednesday night as it prevailed 4-1 to improve to 9-8-2 on the season. After a scoreless first period, Artemi Panarin put the Rangers on the board with a power play goal 1:14 into the second period with assists from Kaapo Kakko and Adam Fox. Panarin made it 2-0 with 16:03 remaining in the third period on another power play goal assisted by Kakko and Ryan Strome. Pavel Buchnevich pushed the lead to 3-0 23 seconds later with assists courtesy of Filip Chytil and Brendan Lemieux. After the Capitals cut it to 3-1, New York put it away with 6:26 remaining on a Brett Howden goal off assists from Buchnevich and Chris Kreider. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 of 31 shots in the win.
Senators win in OT
Ottawa secured a 2-1 overtime win at Montreal Wednesday night to move to 10-11-1 on the season. Brady Tkachuk scored the game-winner 38 seconds into the extra session on assists from Chris Tierney and Nikita Zaitsev. The Senators fell behind 1-0 44 seconds into the second period, but evened it at 1-1 on a Jean-Gabriel Pageau goal with 10:05 to go in the second with assists by Tyler Ennis and Mark Borowiecki. Craig Anderson registered 35 saves on 36 shots in the winning effort.
NHL Betting Trends
The Rangers are 5-2 in their last seven games as an underdog. New York is 18-38 in its last 56 games following a win.
The Senators are 4-1 in their last five games overall. Ottawa is 4-1 in its last five games versus the Eastern Conference.
Neither team has a rest advantage, but I like the way the Rangers are entering this game as they must have some confidence after knocking off a Caps squad that was tied for the most points in the Eastern Conference coming in. Lundqvist is seemingly back in a groove following that start and look for another strong showing out of him here. I like the value on New York here in a game that feels almost like a coin toss.
