Flyers at Rangers: Projected starting goalies

Alex Lyon (0-1-0, .880 SV%, 4.40 GAA) vs. Alexandar Georgiev (7-5-2, .902 SV%, 2.79 GAA)

Lyon starts Friday with Carter Hart (knee) still on the injured list and Elliott starting Thursday. The third-string netminder has made one start and one relief appearance since March 31. He has a .880 save percentage and 4.40 goals against average in 18 career NHL games.

Georgiev looks to extend a personal win streak to three games. He is 3-1-2 with a .922 SV% and 2.47 GAA through seven games on home ice this season, and he’s 2-0-0 with one shutout and just 2 goals allowed on 48 shots against the Flyers.

Flyers at Rangers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Rangers 4, Flyers 1

Money line (ML)

The RANGERS (-155) came up short Thursday but have a greater edge in Thursday’s goaltending battle and deserved a better fate in Game 1 of this back-to-back.

Philly went 2-for-6 on the power play Thursday with the Rangers going 0-for-3. New York registered 52.6% of the total shot attempts.

Against the spread (ATS)

The RANGERS -1.5 (+150) are more profitable for a win by at least 2 goals than they were Thursday and need to be backed once again.

Lyon has done little to inspire confidence in his limited NHL experience. Georgiev is best on home ice and has given the Flyers fits in two meetings this season.

Over/Under (O/U)

Back the UNDER 6.5 (-115) on a high total with Georgiev’s success against Philly in 2021.

The Rangers are ninth in the NHL in expected goals for at 5-on-5 since April 1, but the Flyers are just 20th.
