Free NHL Pick For Feb 24: Rangers vs. Islanders
New York Rangers (1.68) vs. New York Islanders (2.33); Total 5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
Our game of interest for tonight is the battle of New York. Let’s start with the goaltending. No Lundqvist in goal for the Rangers as Biron will get the start in goal for them. Biron has great numbers on the season but has lost 2 of his last 3 starts allowing 11 goals. In between the pipes for the Islanders will be Nabakov. Nabakov has been battling injuries and the flu. This will be his first start since Feb 14. The trend between these two teams has been high scoring Rangers wins. The Rangers have won 7 of the last 9 meetings in this series and 6 of the last 7 meetings have gone OVER the total. Who wins this battle of New York?

New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders Prediction:
The Rangers are supposed to win this game but with no Lundqvist in goal and the Rangers cooling off with just 2 wins in their last 4 games it seems too risky to be backing the Rangers as such a big favorite. The OVER in this game is where my money will be. Currently the total in this game is 5 goals (1.85 to the over). In the last 10 meetings between the two teams there has been 70 goals which gives us an average of 7 goals per game. In the last 7 games between these tow teams there has been 6 goals or more in 6 of them. And we are getting a decent price of 1.85 for the OVER at 5 Dimes Sportsbook (or 1.80 at Bodog Sportsbook). I’ll take the Rangers vs. Islanders to go OVER the total.
