Penguins vs. Rangers Pick

NHL Predictions: Can the Penguins top the Rangers in New York? 10/17/17

Can the New York Rangers find a way to hold off the Pittsburgh Penguins when the two rivals meet up on the ice tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Penguins are the slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -115 to win. The Rangers are listed with a money line of -105 to prevail, while the over/under total has been set at 6 goals. The Penguins have won seven of their last 10 meetings with the Rangers. Tonight’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 win over the Panthers a few days ago to improve to 3-2-1 on the season. They are just 1-1-1 on the road this season. Pittsburgh is posting 3.33 goals per game while allowing 4.17 per contest. Matt Murray is 3-0-1 this season over five games with a 3.29 GAA and a .899 save percentage. Sidney Crosby has three goals and five assists to lead the team while Bryan Rust also has eight points for the Pens.

The Rangers are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Devils at home a few nights ago to fall to 1-5 on the season. New York is 1-3 at home this year. The Rangers are averaging just 2.17 goals per game while giving up 3.50 per contest. Henrik Lundqvist hasn’t been too bad in net, allowing a 2.82 GAA with a .914 save percentage in five games. However, the scoring hasn’t been there. Mika Zibanejad has five goals, but only one other player has multiple goals. Kevin Shattenkirk has two goals with three assists.

Bet on Penguins vs. Rangers

The Penguins have won 10 of their last 13 in this series overall and they have also won six of their last seven in New York. New York has lost nine of its last 11 against the Metro Division and four of their last five at home. The public is strongly behind the Pens tonight and I tend to agree. Pittsburgh has the scoring that New York is lacking. Look for the Penguins to continue their scoring success tonight.
