Back Rangers ATS vs Montreal in NHL Odds

Teams in separate places this season will meet for just the second time when the Montreal Canadiens visit the New York Rangers on Thursday. The Rangers have won five straight to sit at the top of the Metropolitan Division and have a deep run in the playoffs on their minds. Montreal, meanwhile, hasn’t been as lucky, losing two of its last three and remaining out of the playoff race. New York is a solid favorite at home, and for better value, taking it to cover the spread should be a strong NHL pick for Feb. 15.

Canadiens vs Rangers ATS Pick: New York Rangers -1.5 (Ev)

The Habs got the better of New York in their first meeting via shootout, but Montreal shouldn’t be so lucky this time away from home ice.

The Rangers are a solid 18-7 at home this season, and they are playing well lately with their defense especially strong. In their last five games, New York has given up 1.4 goals a game, shutting out Calgary in its last win as well.

With the Rangers’ defense playing so strong and expected starter Igor Shesterkin also contributing to that, recording a .952 save percentage since coming back from the All-Star break, the Canadiens should struggle to score. Though Montreal has scored five goals twice in its last five, it was against weaker defenses and it averaged two goals in the three games it played against stronger teams.

Montreal also has one of the worst defenses in the league, and with New York’s offense averaging 3.6 goals in its last five, it should have no problem covering the spread at home.

 

Canadiens vs Rangers Player Prop Pick: Nick Suzuki Any Time Goal (+240)

Although goals will likely be hard to come by for the Habs, someone has to do it for them to avoid getting shut out, and Suzuki has been one of the most productive players on the team recently. Suzuki has scored six goals in his last four games, finding the back of the net in all four of those games and five of his last six.

With Suzuki playing rather consistently as of late, he’s a value NHL bet to light the lamp yet again for Montreal.
