The National Hockey League (NHL) will resume its regular season schedule tonight with seven exciting matchups, including the Flames playing host to the Wild, the Bruins facing off against the Avalanche, and the Rangers traveling to Vegas to face the Golden Knights, who have been on a tear recently.
Let’s get started by going over my top three picks for tonight’s ice hockey action. And now for a more in-depth look at the Rangers and the Golden Knights.
Wednesday’s NHL odds, picks, and predictions feature the Rangers taking on the Golden Knights.
The Rangers are currently 12-10-5 and are in fifth place in the Metropolitan Division. Unfortunately, the Rangers’ good fortune from their deep playoff run the previous season has not carried over to the current campaign.
On the other hand, Vegas is overjoyed with its leadership position in the Pacific Division and its 19-7-1 start to the season. Tonight in Sin City, the opening faceoff is scheduled to begin at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET).
This year’s Vegas roster features a lot of depth across the board, and the team currently ranks in the top 10 in both the offensive and defensive categories. They are allowing just 2.56 goals per contest while averaging 3.4 goals per game, which places them eighth (6th). Their goal differential of +21 places them in fourth place in the league.
There is nothing in particular that stands out about the Golden Knights. They are simply playing outstanding, fundamentally sound team hockey under the direction of Bruce Cassidy. When you consider his time spent in Boston, you’ll notice that his teams almost always played in this manner.
They played aggressive, well-organized hockey and appeared to consistently rank among the top five defensive teams. This manner of play has evidently been carried over to Vegas, as Cassidy is off to a strong start in his first year with the organization despite the fact that this is his first year with the team.
After considering all of this, I’ve decided to put my money on the Golden Knights at the moneyline for tonight’s game. They are considerably more reliable than the Rangers at the moment, and as a result, they ought to be able to take both points at their own arena.
