Rangers – Montreal: prediction for the NHL regular season match (04/28/2022)

There are only five meetings scheduled for April 28 in the National Hockey League, but there is something to see. We would pay attention to the confrontation between the New York Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens, which will be held on the ice at Madison Square Garden in New York. The first face-off will take place at 2:30 Moscow time. Carey Price and Alexander Romanov are tormented by Artemy Panarin.

And that’s why. First, Montreal is 16th in the Eastern Conference and last in the NHL standings. The Rangers, on the other hand, are in fourth position in the conference, a place in the playoffs has long been secured for them. The minimum task has been completed. Secondly, Montreal has not won a single match in the last nine meetings, having lost to Boston the day before (3:5).

However, there is good news – Alexander Romanov plays in the first line, he has 13 points in 77 meetings. Of course, the numbers are not great, but there is progress. Last season, there were only seven points in 58 games. And Carey Price has already taken part in four meetings since his return. In general, these are pleasant moments, although they do not particularly affect the game.

The New York Rangers, on the other hand, have won seven times over the past ten meetings. Lost only to Boston (1:3) and Carolina twice (2:4 and 3:4). In the last match against the Hurricanes, Alexi Lafrenier scored a goal, he has 30 points in 77 games. Mika Zibanejad assisted (81 points in 80 games) and Chris Kreider scored and assisted (52 goals and 77 points in 80 games this season).

The numbers are quite good, especially against the background of the opponent. It is a pity that Artemy Panarin has been silent for two matches already, because he has four points left to score up to 100 points in the season. So far, only Kirill Kaprizov has overcome this milestone. Although the Russian on the eve stood out differently. At the same time, he left the ice ahead of schedule due to damage.

However, the head coach of the club – Gerard Gallan – said that the coaching staff simply decided to save the player before the playoffs. I think everything will be ok. In addition, recently Igor Shesterkin broke the club’s record, which belonged to Henrik Lundqvist himself (35 wins in 54 games). Igor won 35 victories in 50 meetings.

Now the goalkeeper has 36 wins in 53 matches. And it seems that this is not the limit. Ahead is not the most difficult opponent. In the last five face-to-face meetings in New York, Montreal has two wins, but the statistics are dated 2017-2021. It is worth taking only two meetings this season. Here the Rangers won at home and away with a total score of 6:3.

The result is natural. “Montreal” for the season experienced big problems with the defense, the goalkeeper line. In addition, an attack without special stars. So it was hard to hope for high performance. Although in general the opponents score regularly, only twice in New York the total of matches was below four goals.

Teams finish the season for fun, they don’t chase points. The Rangers have scored 17 goals in the last five meetings, conceding only 10 times. Montreal have 14 goals with 27 conceded. The numbers are so-so, Igor Shesterkin is clearly in an advantageous position here. And the owners in general are in the black.

We considered the bet “Win1 + both teams to score” for the odds of 1.75. Teams play well in face-to-face meetings. Yes, Montreal is not always good in attack, but in the last five games they have not gone without a puck. Even taking into account the skill of Igor Shesterkin, I think that the guests will still play enough for one or two. Although the hosts are clear favorites.

“Rangers” – “Montreal”: forecast and bet on the NHL match April 28, 2022

The Rangers are in good shape right now, making the playoffs. Igor Shesterkin feels great, Artemy Panarin too. The team is in good shape. “Montreal” is an outsider this season: everything is very bad in attack and defense. In recent games, he scored, the fight will give, but you can hardly count on much. There is nothing special to oppose the Rangers, I think the hosts will win.

Bid: both to score + Rangers win at 1.75.
