(The Spread) – The New Jersey Devils continue to fight despite their fading postseason hopes. Can they top the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday?

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Pittsburgh –114 money line favorites over New Jersey, which is +105. The over/under total for this game is currently sitting at 5 goals.

The Devils enter Friday night’s game with a 34-35-3-1 overall record, which includes a 16-20-1-0 mark on the road. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 42-20 in all New Jersey games this season, and 21-9 when the Devils play on the road.

The Penguins head into tonight’s contest with a 43-23-5-3 overall record and are 22-13-2-0 at home. The under is 45-26 in all Pittsburgh games this season, as the Pens are averaging 2.81 goals for and 2.42 goals against.

NHL Prediction: The price on Pittsburgh is nice considering the recent direction of these two teams. New Jersey has lost three of its last four outings while Pittsburgh has won six of eight. The home team is 6-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams, while the favorite is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall. Meanwhile, the Penguins are 4-1 in their last five games overall and the Devils are 10-27 in their last 37 games as a road underdog. With forward Jordan Staal riding one of the best months of his career (he’s averaging nearly a point per contest), I like the Penguins tonight.
