Free Pick - Rickenbach NHL Game #57 Thursday - New York Rangers Money Line (-) @ Buffalo Sabres @ 7:05 ET - This line has dropped all morning line and is now in a very favorable price range for a Rangers club that is certainly the better team plus also playing with home loss revenge. Yes it was last season but April wasn't that long ago and the Rangers lost to the Sabres 4-3 at Madison Square Garden in a game that New York #1 netminder Henrik Lundqvist got pulled early after allowing 3 goals on just 9 shots. You can bet (literally!) that Lundqvist and the Rangers will have revenge on their minds tonight and, even though they are off of a win over Carolina they also have another game with the Hurricanes on deck. That said, this game tonight is certainly the focal point for the Rangers in terms of their current scheduling situation. That said, when the Rangers are focused they are tough to beat and they also are catching the Sabres off of a big divisional win (5-4 over Ottawa) so it is a good spot to fade Buffalo. The Sabres, before their win over the Senators, had lost 8 of their 10 prior games. Buffalo, prior to the win over the Sens, had also been held to 2 goals or less in 12 of their last 13 games! That is significant here because the Rangers are the top ranked offense in the league at 3.67 goals per game while the Sabres are dead last at 1.95 goals per game so far this season. The drop in line here makes this one well worth the investment. Free Pick on NEW YORK RANGERS on the money line Thursday evening. Best of luck, Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach
