Rangers Have Been Great at MSG

If the New York Rangers could solve their deficiencies on the road then they would likely be the best team in hockey, but luckily for them they will be in Madison Square Garden once again Sunday. The Rangers are 20-5-3 at home this season, the third-best record on home ice in the NHL. The Rangers will host the fledgling Philadelphia Flyers Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-2 in the Flyers past six games on the road.
  • The Rangers are 13-2 SU in their past 15 games when hosting the Flyers.
  • The Flyers called up Andrew MacDonald after Michael Del Zotto suffered an injury last game.

The Rangers will be short staffed with Ryan McDonagh missing his fourth game due to a concussion and Rick Nash still on the shelf. New York has picked up at least one point in nine consecutive home games, with their last, non-overtime loss at MSG coming against the Capitals on December 20.

Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is on an 11-game point streak (three goals, 11 assists), which is the longest in NHL history for a rookie d-man. Despite that impressive streak, the Flyers have just four wins in their past 11 outings with the team surrendering an average of three goals per game in that span.
