The rangers will be no pushovers though, as they still have plenty of talent on this team despite their mediocre record and they will be motivated to send the crowd home happy.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were rolling before losing their last game, as they lost to the Bruins last time out in a thriller which ended with a score of 7-5 snapping their previously held 5 game winning streak.
Sidney Crosby has still very much been doing Sidney Crosby things scoring 15 goals and adding 28 assists, as he looks to bring yet another Stanley Cup home to Pittsburgh which would go down as his greatest accomplishment given the team he is playing with now in comparison to those Stanley Cup rosters.
The Penguins appear to have found a seriously talented goalie in Casey DeSmith as well, with a .922 save percentage and an outstanding 2.13 GAA and if he can continue putting up numbers like this he will give this team every chance to make a deep run.
New York Rangers
It is going to be very hard for this Rangers team to feel too good about themselves here, as they are coming off of a 3-2 loss against the Buffalo Sabres and if you have been watching NHL hockey in 2021 you know just how bad that result is.
There are plenty of reasons to be excited as a Rangers fan though, as that record can be a bit misleading, with guys like Artemi Panarin and Adam Fox having really nice seasons and who will be pillars for this team going forward.
One slight worry for the Rangers might be their 1st overall selection of Alexis Lafreniere, who has had a tough time adjusting to life in the NHL, as he has only got 5 goals and 6 assists thus far this season which is not all that great for a guy who had the amount of hype as Lafreniere.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Penguins are 4-0 in their last 4 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game.
- Penguins are 6-0 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest.
- Penguins are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. a team with a losing record.
- Penguins are 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games.
- Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games.
- Penguins are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in New York.
- Penguins are 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.
Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
The Rangers do have plenty of talent, but the Penguins look pretty solid, and I can’t imagine the Rangers are feeling great about themselves off of that loss to the Sabres and do not expect their best here.
The Penguins have the advantage in terms of the goalies, as I do not completely believe in Shesterkin just yet and the Penguins have plenty of firepower of their own with guys like Crosby, Guentzel and Bryan Rust presenting a problem for the Rangers blue-line.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were also red hot before that last loss, and the fact that we are getting them as a slight underdog here seems like a pretty decent deal, as I see enough value being there in that -105 line.
