So the Penguins just finished burying me in a comeback win against the Blues. Very good hockey game that saw Sidney Crosby mixing it up with Finnish defenceman Nike Mikkola.
After that battle ended Crosby and Mikkola both ended up with penalties, but Mikkola drew blood and so Pittsburgh got a power play out of it. It was all downhill from there.
Pittsburgh has been red hot as of late winners of 9 straight games now. And they are still without Evgeni Malkin who is reportedly going to return at some point during this upcoming road trip.
Where that is tomorrow night against the Flyers remains uncertain, but either way this is the best team in the NHL right now and hard to bet against, as I have learned the hard way tonight.
So, let’s dig into what this team is doing well and also, review the pesky state rival Flyers who are also turning it around right now after a rough start to the year,
They are losers of three straight games but have gone 5-3-2 over their last ten games and have been looking much better than they did through the first 12 games of the season.
They have some good possession numbers, ranking 5th in faceoff percentage and do well corsi wise. They do however have a tough time generating offence this season.
Currently scoring at a rate of of 2.61 goals per game, good for 27th in the league and only putting roughly 30 shots on goal a game those struggles are sure to continue.
The Penguins are the best bet in the NHL right now plain and simple. Winner of 9 straight and due to get Malkin back healthy should be cause for concern for any opponent right now.
Since yesterday the game against the Blues they have moved up to 11th in the league in goals per game at 3.22 per game. They are also 3rd in the league in shots on goal per game with an average of 35.
They did pull DeSmith against St. Louis after he gave up 3 goals, but they have otherwise been getting incredible goaltending from Jarry.
I won’t be making the mistake of betting against this team again.

I cannot bet against the Penguins two days in a row. The loss to the Blues doesn’t sting that bad because that was a very good team getting the juice, but this Penguins team is just too good right now.
Going into their bitter rivals building is somewhat of a deterrent but again they are playing too well in every area of their game and the Flyers are just the opposite.
The Flyers are also without Claude Giroux and Ivan Provorov due to Covid-19 protocols and therefore I cannot see them winning this game without two of their best pieces.
Hammer the Penguins puckline today! Best of luck to you.
