My first inclination was to go with Pittsburgh ML, but after further analysis, I am going with the Over +5.5 in this game.
Zatkoff is in the net for Pittsburgh (2.75 GAA), and this is after a long trip back from the West Coast, closing out a 5-game road trip. Add Washington's 24th-ranked defense, and I believe you will have plenty of scoring, enough to go over 5.5...
I still lean towards Pittsburgh, though. Halak is a definite improvement at the goalie position, but he doesn't have that St. Louis defense in front of him anymore...
Good luck to all!
