The defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins have shown no signs of a hangover from blowing the Stanley Cup last spring. In fact, Boston has been one of the most profitable teams with the NHL betting odds so far this season. The New York Rangers have been wildly inconsistent as a rebuilding team that is in full blown on the job training. In particular the Broadway Blueshirts back end has been a perpetual source of frustration. New York is not ready to contend but does boast enough offense to keep things interesting. Boston hosts the Rangers in the NBC Black Friday matchup.
