Alain Vigneault will be judged as one of the better coaches in New York Rangers history. In his five seasons with the Broadway Blueshirts he led them to the Stanley Cup Playoffs four times and a berth in the Stanley Cup Final in his first season behind the bench. Vigneault ended up fired but mostly because the team decided to blow up the roster and go into a massive rebuild.
Now Vigneault is with the Philadelphia Flyers and again enjoying success with the NHL betting lines. The Flyers are not only in playoff position but would have home ice for the first round. Vigneault will be facing his old team at Madison Square Garden Sunday on NBC.

Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers NHL Odds Pick
Philadelphia is the more experienced and complete team in this matchup. New York is vastly improved up front but their back end could cost them a playoff berth. Additionally, the Rangers are yet to figure out a coherent plan in goal. Having three goalies rarely works, especially when one is Henrik Lundqvist.
