New York Rangers Stanley Cup Betting

Following a disappointing 2020-21 season, the New York Rangers blew up their leadership structure. New general manager Chris Drury and head coach Gerard Gallant were tasked with jumpstarting a rebuild that seemed to be stuck in the ditch. The Rangers showed dramatic improvement to make it all the way to the Eastern Conference Final. New York led Tampa Bay 2-0 to open that conference championship series but then melted under the spotlight and was eliminated after four consecutive losses. Still, the season went down as a success. But now comes higher expectations and a target that was not on them one year ago.

New York Rangers at a Glance

2022-2023 Stanley Cup Odds: +1600 (Aug, 2022)

Eastern Conference Odds: +964 (Aug, 2022)

Last year the New York Rangers finished 52-24-6 to finish second in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers won two playoff series before losing the Eastern Conference Final to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Rangers ranked 17th in the NHL for goal scoring, 4th for power play efficiency, 2nd for goals against, and 7th for penalty killing.

General manager Chris Drury is a former NHL player. He played for the New York Rangers in the final four seasons of his career. Previously he was in the Rangers front office as a director of player development and then as assistant general manager.

Head coach Gerard Gallant is best known for two things. First, getting fired by the Florida Panthers on a road trip in which he had to hail a cab to the airport. Photos of the incident went viral and won him a lot of fan empathy, especially after winning the Atlantic Division title just a few months before. Second, Gallant led the brand new expansion Vegas Golden Knights to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final. It was the greatest first year for a major league expansion team in history. Gallant has a career record of 322-240-4. He was the 2018 Jack Adams Award winner as NHL coach of the year.

When “King” Henrik Lundqvist retired, New York Ranger fans feared they would never have a dominant goaltender again. Instead. Igor Shesterkin has filled the void left by the beloved Lundqvist. Last year Shesterkin posted a dominant .935 save percentage and 2.07 goals against average. And then, in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Shesterkin turned in a .929 save percentage. At age 26, he has the Rangers secure in goal for years to come.

Left wing Chris Kreider is the premier power forward in the NHL and coming off a career-best season. Kreider scored 52 goals with 25 assists and a +19. He is a two-time NHL All-Star, including last year.

New York Rangers History

Founded as an Original Six franchise in 1926, the Rangers have four Stanley Cup championships, with the last one occurring in 1994. But for many fans, the Glory Years were the late 1960s and early 1970s when the Rangers did everything but win the Stanley Cup. Rod Gilbert, Jean Ratelle, Vic Hadfield, and Eddie Giacomin lit up the Madison Square Garden marquee and made the 1972 Stanley Cup Final, losing to Bobby Orr and the Big Bad Boston Bruins in six games. New York had several other near misses in that special era of team history.

The greatest moment in Rangers’ history came in 1994 when they ended a 54-year curse by winning the Stanley Cup. In a thrilling seven game series, the Rangers first had to get past the New Jersey Devils in the Conference Final. That win over the Devils will forever be remembered for captain Mark Messier going full-throttle Joe Namath and guaranteeing that the Broadway Blueshirts would prevail. Subsequently, New York won another thrilling seven game series against the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final. The Rangers clinched the Stanley Cup in front of their home fans in an unforgettable moment in time. The days of “1940” chants by hated Islander fans were shut up forever with the title.
