Rangers Aim to End Drought Against Habs

The New York Rangers sit second in the East, but have faltered in recent meetings against the fledging Montreal Canadiens. The Rangers have dropped the past three vs the Habs, with the team from the Big Apple tallying just one goal in those outings. The Rangers will look to end a two-game road skid when they visit the Bell Centre Saturday night.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-2 in the Rangers last six games.
  • The Canadiens are 8-4 SU in their past 12 games at the Bell Centre.
  • The Rangers will start Anti Raanta (2.34 GAA) and Mike Condon (2.65 GAA) will start for the Habs.

The Canadiens have dominated their Eastern Conference rivals in the past several years, especially in Montreal, as the Habs are 10-1-0 in the past 11 games hosting the Rangers.  However, the Canadiens enter Saturday’s matchup with just two wins in their past seven games and have allowed four goals or more in all but one of those games.

The Rangers will enter the game riding a two-game winning streak that saw the team score a combined nine goals. That offensive outburst has been a team effort as seven different players have scored those nine goals.
