Rangers vs. Blues: Best Picks
Jordan Kyrou has been an extremely talented goalscorer throughout the season. He has been proving that lately and has posted three goals in his last two games. In his only other game against the Rangers this year, Kyrou produced a pair of points (one goal, one assist) and should do well against a strong overall team. Kyrou will get his attempts on the ice and should be able to produce here, so go with at least a single point by him here.
Jordan Kyrou Over 0.5 Points (-160)

The favorite has won the game in four of their last five meetings, so go with the New York Rangers as a road favorite to get some points in the standings.
