The Pittsburgh Penguins bring a 2 game win streak into Madison Square Garden in a very winnable contest vs. the Rangers. Pittsburgh has gone 6-2-2 over their last 10 and needs a win as they are just 2 points up from Carolina in the Eastern Conference wild card spot.
The Rangers are downtrodden as their 71 points are nothing better than middle-of-the-pack. The Rangers have played very uninspired hockey lately, going 2-5-3 over their last 10 although they are coming in off an OT win in Toronto.
Is going on the road going to be Pittsburgh’s Achilles heel on Monday? Not really as the Pens are 20-11-5 away from their own ice this season. They have also won 8 of the last 10 at Madison Square Garden.
What Pittsburgh could really need in this matchup is an offensive improvement. Saturday’s 3-2 win over Dallas was the first time the Penguins scored more than 2 goals in the last 4 games.
Pittsburgh is an incredibly risky bet at -195 considering how poor their offense has played lately and the fact that Monday will be their fourth straight game on the road. As if the travel wasn’t enough, 3 of the last 4 Penguins games have gone to OT.
New York Rangers
One of the good things for Pittsburgh backers in this one is that the Rangers offense isn’t exactly lighting the lamp on the regular either. New York has been held to 2 goals or less in six straight, and 9 of the last 10. The ‘over’ has only hit in one of the Rangers last 10 games and is set on the high side at 6 for Monday.
It’s Matt Murray vs. Henrik Lundqvist in net for this one. Murray has allowed just 7 goals total over his last 4 starts. Lundqvist has also had some solid outings lately, surrendering 2 goals to opponents in 3 of 5 games.
