The over is 8-1-4 in the Rangers' last 13 games following a loss of three or more goals and 7-1-4 in their last 12 road games. The over is also 5-0-4 in their last nine games after scoring two goals or less in their previous game and 7-1-4 in their last 12 games when their opponent allows two goals or less in their previous contest.

On the other side, the over is 9-1-3 in the Pens' last 13 games when their opponent scores two goals or less in their previous contest. The over is also 8-3-2 in the Penguins' last 13 games overall and 16-6-4 in their last 26 home games versus a team with a losing road record.

In the past seven meetings between these two teams, the over is 3-1-3 in the last seven meetings. The over has already cashed in two of the first four matchups in this series and fell a half-goal short in the Penguins' 5-0 victory in Game 4 as well. Lundqvist, who was pulled in the second period in Game 4, isn't on his game right now, which should lead to plenty of goals again today.
