New York Rangers vs Florida Panthers Expert Betting Pick
New York Rangers vs Florida Panthers Expert Betting Pick for 11/21/15 Martin St. Louis who? Mats Zuccarello is absolutely killing it for the Rangers offense. It’s not even his speed that shines, it’s his ability to see the ice from behind the ice. And having a long stick helps his cause. When I first saw this kid come into the NHL I knew right away what was all about. When I used to play I was a smaller player on the team and I always made behind the net my office. Every team needs that player, and the Rangers have it…again.
Mats Zuccarello leads New York with nine goals, Keith Yandle has nine assists and Oscar Lindberg has 33 shots on goal. The New York Rangers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 17.8 percent of their power plays.
The Rangers had averaged 3.7 goals per game during their win streak, but only mustered one goal, in Tampa, while getting just 21 shots off on Ben Bishop. As mentioned in my Ducks/Lightning article, the Bolts were due for a win and the Rags were due for a loss. That’s hockey.
Goltender Henrik Lundqvist is now 10-5 with a 1.71 goals against average on the year. There’s a reason he is the header of my website, he has been the most consistent goaltender season after season that I have witnessed so far in my life time. His nick name isn’t The King for nothing.
New York check in at 5th in the league in scoring (3.0 goals per game, but they are just 18th in power play conversions (17.8%). On the defensive end of the ice they are at the top in goals allowed (1.7 goals per game) and 2nd in penalty kill (86.9%). Thanks to Henrik Lundqvist.
The other day I backed the Panthers which was based all around Florida being home and Jagr being scoring hungry to make the top 3 list in all time scoring in the history of the game. Will he continue to climb the ladder at 43 years old?
The Florida Panthers are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 21.2 percent of their power plays. Jaromir Jagr leads Florida with seven goals, Jussi Jokinen has eight assists and Vincent Trocheck has 30 shots on goal.
Florida has been an average offensive team this year, but in the loss to the Ducks all they could muster was just one goal on 25 shots. The Panthers have now scored just one goal in two straight games and in five of their last 10 games overall. They are due for an outburst but it appears Luongo has checked out until the offense gets their ass’ together.
Luongo is now 6-9 with a 2.33 goals against average on the year and he’s just 7-15 with a 2.93 goals against average vs the Rangers in his career. Florida is 13th in goals allowed at 2.4 goals per game, but a poor 25th on the penalty kill (75.8%).
