Rangers Sizzling in Games After a Loss

Henrik Lundqvist New York Rangers NHL

The New York Rangers have done a great job of hanging around the No. 2 spot in the Metropolitan Division and preventing back-to-back losses has had a big hand in that. The Blueshirts are in that spot once again when they tangle with the St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against the Blues.
  • The Blues are 3-0 SU in their last three games off a loss.
  • The Rangers are 6-14 SU in their last 20 road games.

The Rangers are presently +105 road dogs in moneyline markets at online shop Bovada while the Blues are -135. The total is tabbed at 5 goals with OVER and UNDER both priced at -115.

The Rangers have gone 10-0 SU in their last 10 games coming off a loss in their previous effort. While they are still miles back of the Washington Capitals in the Metro, that ability to rebound has kept the team in second and helped them fend off the pesky New York Islanders. New York lost 5-2 to the New Jersey Devils in its last contest Tuesday and will look to prevent its first two-game losing skid since mid December.

The Blues had a five-game winning streak snapped with a 6-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks Monday night. Goaltender Jake Allen will certainly be seeing more time in the blue paint now that Brian Elliott is out for the next four weeks. Trouble is, the Blues have lost the last five games that Allen has appeared in dating back to December 31.
