The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for a bit of a bounce back game after dropping a 3-5 contest to Chicago on Sunday. That loss snapped an 8-game losing streak for the Pens. The Florida Panthers come to PPG Pants Arena on Tuesday as heavy underdogs but with a 6-3-1 record over their last 10.
The Panthers are sitting in 11th in the East but have made some movement up the ranks lately. Five of their recent six wins have come against Buffalo (2), Detroit (2), and Chicago however. Are the Panthers playing well or just running into inferior opponents?
Florida has scored 3+ goals in 5 of 6 but it’s their defense that will have to win this vs. one of the best offenses in the league. Roberto Luongo is in net for Florida going 1-3 in his last 4 decisions and allowing 3+ goals in 4 of 5 appearances.
Pittsburgh dropped a game to Chicago Sunday but overall their play has been stellar lately. The Penguins netted 25 goals in the five games prior to Sunday while holding opponents to just 7. The Panthers rank 28th in goals against so it should be another solid night for Pittsburgh’s offense.
One thing the Panthers do bring to Tuesday’s game is a top 10 scoring offense. It will be up to Matt Murray to keep that offense at bay. The Pittsburgh goaltender is riding a 7-game win streak.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Panthers are 0-4 their last 4 vs. a team with a winning record
- Penguins are 8-1 their last 9 overall
- Panthers are 4-17 their last 21 in Pittsburgh
Free Florida Panthers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Prediction:
Pittsburgh should be able to get back on the winning track on Tuesday. There isn’t a whole lot of value with the -185 Penguins line but Florida pulling off the upset is a very tough order. Yes Chicago got the win on Sunday at PPG, but they’ve won 10 of 11 vs. the Penguins.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Penguins -185
Too much offense and too good of net minding for Florida to capture this one.
