Seattle Kraken (+155) @ New York Rangers (-180)
The Garden should be absolutely buzzing tonight. New York recently traded for Vladimir Tarasenko, the man they’re hoping will be the final piece for their cup run. He’s a fantastic addition and I’ve paid more for a steak than they did to get him.
With him on the first line with fellow Russian Artemi Panarin I expect the team to come out with a lot of energy. Visiting tonight is a struggling Kraken team that has scored just 1 goal in their 2 games since the all star break. Being on a back to back they get a very tough match up with Igor Shesterkin in net.
This team is looking like a true cup contender right now and I think they plan to showcase that tonight and stick it to the Kraken.
New York Rangers -.5 in First Period (+140)
New York Rangers -1.5 (+135)
