New York Rangers vs Ottawa Senators NHL Puck Wagering Lines
Two teams headed in opposite directions clash tonight as the New York Rangers host the Ottawa Senators in National Hockey League Eastern Conference action. The Rangers have won four in a row while the injury beleaguered Senators have dropped four straight. Game time is slated for 7:00 PM ET on Friday, March 8, 2013, from Madison Square Garden in New York, NY.
New York Rangers: Regaining Cup contending form
After what can only be described as a roller coaster type first half of the 2012-13 NHL season, the New York Rangers are starting to play like the Cup contenders many pundits thought they would be. The Broadway Blueshirts have reeled off four straight wins by a 13-6 combined count. The Rangers are playing on back-to-back nights as they are coming off a 2-1 overtime win against the New York Islanders. Solid defence has been key to the Rangers resurgence.
Ottawa Senators: After a hot start injuries are starting to take a toll
While many thought injuries to Jason Spezza, Erik Karlsson, and Craig Anderson, would doom the Senators season, Ottawa went out and racked up five straight wins without their star players. As they always do however, being shorthanded is starting to take a toll as Ottawa has now dropped four straight games away from their home pond at Scotiabank Place. The Senators road trip wraps up in the Big Apple tonight and a fifth straight loss is looming large.
