Both teams have winning records this year and both teams are coming off a win. This game should get some added attention from gamblers making an NHL bet at the Sbg sportsbook since it is being televised on the Versus network.
Bruins 6-1 on the Road
The time to bet the Bruins is when they are on the road. Boston has simply been sizzling away from home this season. The Bruins have a very good goaltender in Tim Thomas and when you can play defense and get good goaltending you can win on the road. This is a strange game on Wednesday with the Bruins doing great on the road and the Rangers struggling at home so Boston could be worth a bet.
Rangers Three-Game Winning Streak
The Rangers come into this game playing very well. They have won three straight and they have Marian Gaborik back in the starting lineup. There is actually real hope for the Rangers this season. New York is coming off a 3-2 overtime win against the Penguins on Monday. It was nearly a 2-0 shutout for Henrik Lundqvist but the Penguins scored two late goals to tie it. The Rangers did get the win in overtime though and that is what counts. The problem if you like the Rangers in this game is that they have played far better on the road than at home. The Rangers actually have a losing record at home this season.
We mentioned earlier how well the Bruins are doing on the road this season. They are also very good on Wednesday’s as they are 9-2 in their last 11 Wednesday games.
