You could call me a biased New Jersey Devils fan, but the reality is this: every pick I recommend is data-driven. I study the statistics, pick apart the trends and share my findings with the FlashPicks Fam.
I’m not afraid to fade my own team when the numbers suggest we should (as I tried to do on Wednesday by backing Auston Matthews to dominate my Devils).
All that is to say, I’ve been studying what’s happening in New York and can confidently and objectively state —with all biases aside— the New York Rangers are NOT a good hockey team. In fact, if we ignore their record: they are technically one of the worst by the numbers. . . and it’s only getting worse.
