Pittsburgh is 26-12-3 on the season for 55 points. The Penguins are 12-5-2 on the road and have scored 135 goals while allowing 95. Pittsburgh has won 5 of its last 10.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Montreal Canadiens, 7:30PM ET (View Matchup)

The Penguins are 1-4 in their last 5 games against Montreal and the Canadiens are 9-4 in their last 13 home games. My pick for this game is Montreal at home as the Canadiens are in the No. 8 spot in the East right now and need the win more and have been solid at home. Given that they are the underdog, I am siding with them at home.
