Rangers are Struggling on the Road

Relying on the New York Rangers for consistent efforts has been a fruitless experience in 2016. The Blueshirts are just 1-11 in their last 12 games following a win, but will be looking to buck that trend Saturday when they tangle with division rival Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center.

Shark Bites
  • The Flyers are 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win.
  • The OVER is 4-0-2 in the Flyers last 6 overall.
  • The Rangers are 3-7 in their last 10 meetings in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is starting to figure it out after a rocky opening to the season and are 8-3-1 in their last 12 thanks to a big 6-3 win over Nashville on Thursday. Philly backers will be pleased to know the home side is 17-6 in the last 23 regular season meetings between these clubs.

Part of the reason the Rangers have been so inconsistent is their poor play away from Madison Square Garden. New York is a paltry 3-13 in its last 16 road tilts — a mark that’s surely worrying head coach Alain Vigneault with the playoffs on the horizon. On the other side of the coin, the Flyers are 7-3 in their last 10 home games.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Philadelphia Flyers were listed earlier today as 104 moneyline underdogs at most sportsbooks tracked by Odds Shark (including Bovada), while odds makers set the opening betting total around 5.
