Reason for Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Rangers NHL Picks

Pittsburgh Penguins -118

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be chasing after a Stanley Cup Title this year while the Chicago Blackhawks will be challenging for the pick in next year's NHL Draft. The Penguins faced the Blackhawks at home in their last game and they needed the shootout period to bet them 3-2. It would have been a bad loss as the Pens were favorites of -220 in the contest. Scoring the deciding goal in the shootout period was Jared McCann.

Pittsburgh is heading into the game here after playing a single game at home in which the Penguins were able to top the Blackhawks 3-2. The Penguins on the year are now sitting in 4th place in the Metro with 21 points, but the Penguins have a 10-6-1 record overall.

On the year, the Penguins are 10-6-1 and is currently in 4th place in the Metropolitan Division.  When covering the Penguins offense, is it impossible to not talk about Sidney Crosby?  Crosby leads the team in points with 17 and assists with 12.  Pittsburgh’s goal leader is center, Jake Guentzel who has scored 8 goals on the season.  Pittsburgh has also received strong goaltending on the season from both Matt Murray and back up, Tristian Jarry. 

Rust has made an immediate impact since returning from injured reserve, scoring five goals in his last six games to help Pittsburgh continue its ascent in the Metropolitan Division.

New York Rangers -104

The New York Rangers got off to another slow start as they went 3-6 through their first nine games, but they have started to play better of late as they Rangers come in having won four of their last six games. Unfortunately, one of their losses in their last six games was in their last game as they fell to the Florida Panthers at home by a score of 6-5 in a shootout.

The New York Rangers are heading into the game here after getting a 6-5 loss to the Florida Panthers. The loss was in the shootout, but it was the end of a very high scoring affair. The loss did drop the Rangers to 6th place in the Metro with a total of 16 points and a 7-6-2 record overall.

The Rangers enter Tuesday’s game against the Penguins with a record of 7-6-2 which is good enough for 6th place in the Metropolitan Division.  Offensively the Rangers are led in points by Artemi Panarin in points with 18 and in goals with 8 as 3 have come on the power play. 

The Rangers are led in assists by center Ryan Strome who has 11 on the season with 4 of them coming on the power play.  Goalie Alexandar Georgiev is 3-3-1 with a goals against average of 2.87 on the season. 

Ryan Strome has 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in his last 10 contests overall and had three goals in four games last season against Pittsburgh. Artemi Panarin has done pretty well for himself as well, as the offseason acquisition is riding an eight-game point streak.
