The New York Rangers travel to Philadelphia tonight to battle with the Flyers in an Eastern Division showdown at the Wells Fargo Center.
Let’s take a look at the Rangers vs. Flyers showdown and make a betting pick in this game between two bitter rivals that will be played on February 18, 2021.
Philadelphia is back playing after a 10-day layoff thanks to multiple players being out due to COVID protocol, causing several games to be postponed. Before the delay, the Flyers had won five of their last seven games, scoring at least three goals or more in six of those contests.

Philly will be without key forwards Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek for the next couple of games, along with four others still under protocol quarantine.
The Rangers have struggled as of late, currently in the midst of a four-game losing streak. Two of those losses came via shutout during that span. The Rangers’ offense has dwindled into one of the worst in the league, ranked 28th in goals scored.

Bets We Like With a Rangers Win
Chris Kreider to Score a Goal Anytime (+235)
The veteran forward has been quiet on the scoresheet as of late, with no goals and a lone assist in his last five games. The 29-year old has six goals and eight assists in 24 career games versus Philadelphia.
Bets We Like With a Flyers Win
Flyers Team Total OVER 3 Goals (-103)
Philadelphia’s offense was starting to click before their brief stoppage in play. The Flyers have scored three or more goals in six of their last seven games. Even without Giroux, Voracek and Oskar Lindblom, Philly will need to get their secondary scorers involved to win tonight.
Bets We Like independent from the outcome
Full Game Under 6 Goals (-122)
Both of these clubs enter this contest with some issues. For Philly, it’s being off for over a week and missing some key offensive stars. For the Rangers, it’s been a lack of consistent scoring and pressure. I expect this to be a lower scoring affair tonight.
Rangers vs. Flyers Pick
With the Flyers needing to adjust to being back on the ice, but also having their trip to Lake Tahoe on deck to play an outdoor game against Boston, this is a solid spot to back the visiting Rangers tonight in a 3-2 overtime victory.
