Calgary Flames vs. New York Rangers Predictions

I get Calgary being favored on the grounds that they’re at home, however the issue I have with that will be that the Flames haven’t been playing all around ok to warrant this sort of sticker price, particularly on home ice where they’ve lost 5 straight games. New York nearly returned from six objectives down to beat Edmonton, and next to each other, while each have won only multiple times in their last ten games, you could put forth a defense that the Rangers are playing the better hockey of the two and they’ve won 10 of the last 14 against Calgary. I’ll make a go with New York and the in addition to cash here.
