This regular season has been surprisingly difficult for the Rangers. Last season, they made the playoffs before reaching the Stanley Cup semifinals, so we'd expect them to take it to the next level, but nothing like that has happened. Gerard Galland's team scored consistently, but by the end of November, they began to lose their form and suffered one setback after another. In the last six meetings, the New York team won only once against Ottawa - 3-1, and five other cases were defeats. A weak stretch saw the Rangers drop to tenth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Even more surprising this season is St. Louis, which is known for the great regular seasons and qualifying for the playoffs each year without much trouble. Now they are playing like they're having fun on a roller coaster. Eight losses followed three wins. Then the Bluesmen won seven games in a row as if there was no crisis. Only Craig Berube's men exhaled, regaining confidence in their abilities, as they failed five more in their last six games, defeating only Florida, 5-4. All this allows St. Louis to go only 12th in the Western Conference.
Expert Betting Tips
The Rangers and St. Louis have powerful lineups, but they need to perform better now. The last six matches have been difficult for them, as they encountered five losses and one win. Fortunately, the faceoff is a chance to improve the situation. The home-field factor speaks in favor of NY, where they've beaten the Musicians in four of their last six matches.
The Rangers and St. Louis had a productive rivalry of late. In the last regular season, the opponents traded home wins - 5-3 and 6-2, and a total of 33 pucks (6.60 average) in the last five encounters - not bad by NHL standards.
