Pittsburgh Over NY Rangers!

True, Rangers won last 2 recent games against Pittsburgh in NY.  But 1st place Pittsburgh much improved since then, even with injuries!  They're now 10-1 in their last 10 games...and have racked up a 10-1 record vs. ML in their last 10 games! 

With Rangers now 1-4 their last 4 home games, will look for revenge minded Penguins to put this one away.

NY 0-4 last 4 games vs. Metropolitan!

Pittsburgh 5-0 in their last 5 vs. Metropolitan!

Penguins now 8-2 in their last 10 meetings vs. NY Rangers!

Pittsburgh Over NY Rangers!   3 Unit Wager!

I'll be taking the Pens, I always regret not wagering hot teams like these guys

Give me the Rags to stand tall on home ice. Pens good, but their injuries cost them leading into the holiday break.

Holy smokes the Pens are an under dogg in this one??? I see the reasoning. They have a really inexperienced blue line right now (some kids look too young to shave), but it sure is hard not to jump on the wagon at a 2.05 ML. Sounds too good to be true though. I think I better make sure Fleury's playing and/or there's no other surprises the odds makers might know. I haven't seen many Pens games have the o/u set at 5 either. GLTA

The only thing I see in the trends is that the Pens are 35-17 in last 52 of a fourth game of a 4 in 6 situation
Pens 3-1-1 on 1 days rest
Home team 4-0 in the last 5
Rangers 7-0 on wednesday games
Rangers 23-11 on 2 days rest
Also Pens haven't confirmed a starting goalie
Granted these are cherry picked stats that anyone can look at but I think the Pens are the best bet in this one considering how inconsistent the Rangers are this season
