Road Warrior Rangers Look to Deal Sharks their 7th Straight Loss

The Rangers will finish off their annual trip to California tonight in a battle against the slumping Sharks, a team they beat 7-4 way back in the third game of the season and that’s lost six straight games. New York opened as a slight underdog but with a road record of 27-11 straight up this season, the Blueshirts will more than likely be the favorite by the time the puck drops.

SHARK BITES
  • The Rangers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against the Sharks.
  • The Sharks have allowed a total of 13 goals in their last 2 games.
  • The Rangers are the 4th-highest scoring team in the NHL (3.13 goals per game).

It’s all falling apart for the Sharks at the absolute worst time. In a plot similar to that of the movie Jaws, the Sharks are getting blown out of the water after destroying everything in their path for most of the season. They’re coming off back-to-back embarrassments to end a nightmare road trip and if they keep playing like they have, they could easily go from having the Pacific Division locked up to qualifying for the playoffs as the eighth-seeded, second wild-card team.

Henrik Lundqvist, who returned from injury in the Rangers’ last outing, was not sharp against the Ducks and he could take a seat in favor of Antti Raanta tonight. The Finn was excellent in King Henrik’s absence, posting a .927 save percentage in nine March starts, and with his career .935 save percentage against the Sharks, he should get the nod.

If the Rangers close as the favorite, I would take a look at their puckline value. New York has an 18-7 ATS record in its last 25 road games and could be a nice bet against the floundering Sharks.
