With the New York Rangers heading to Anaheim to take on the Ducks can they find their winning ways again?

New York Rangers vs Anaheim Ducks Prediction: Can New York Find Their Winning Ways Again?

New York Rangers vs Anaheim Ducks Prediction

Rangers vs Ducks Odds

Tonight we have a battle of backup goalies but we are holding out hope the starting goalie for New York is back(but the odds are slim). Either way, if Igor Shesterkin does play you just lucked out because the line will fly as it did the last game when people heard Shesterkin was out. Las Vegas went from -125  to -185 because that's how good this guy is. If he plays we look great,  if not we still feel comfortable here in the game of backup goalies.

Before their last game, the Rangers were hot winning three in a row including a sweep of the champion Tampa Bay Lighting while the Ducks had been, floundering losing a few in a row. Both of these teams are decimated with injuries and of course, both are playing backup goalies as of now.  Anaheim is missing Josh Gibson and literally, all of their centers are out either from Covid or injury including Ryan Getzlaf who leads the team in assists. Another one of their leaders, defenseman Hampus Lindholm, is out and he is leading the team in scoring in the last 5 games. 

The Rangers have their own injuries as again Shesterkin is the key if he plays we are in amazing shape if not we expect a bounce back from backup goalie Alexander Georgiev after an awful 5 goal performance that we are going with the fact he didn't know he was starting and just wasn't mentally ready. 

The Rangers are also missing Artemi Panarin, their leading goal scorer but they have had other guys step up as they are the only NHL team with four players with 30 or more points, and more importantly their blue line is one of the best in the league. 

 Both of these teams are top 10 in defense and that's the kind of game we are expecting tonight.  The Rangers are only one point out of first in the Metro, they own the Ducks winning nine out of the last 12 matchups. While the Ducks scoring is way down with two goals or less in six of their last 10 games and playing New York. The Rangers are fourth in the league giving up just 2.54 goals per game. We have to say if the Rangers can score three goals they will win this game. 

With two backup goalies in, we will take the better and healthier offensive team coming off a bad loss as they continue their chase of Carolina to win the Metro. Lay the generous -115 and if the Rangers score three goals we win.
