Wednesday's NHL Prediction
The Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Bruins are both sitting in the middle of their divisions and in need of a win on Wednesday when the two meet at 7PM ET.
Boston has played just 11 games this season and is 7-3-1 on the year. The Bruins trail Montreal by four points in the Northeast Division and have scored 33 goals and allowed a conference-low 20. Boston is 5-1-0 on the road this season.
Pittsburgh is 7-7-1 after 15 games this season. The Penguins trail Philadelphia by five points in the Atlantic Division. They have scored 43 goals and allowed 39 on the year and are 2-4-0 at home.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.
Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, 7PM ET
The home team has won five of the last six meetings in this series and the Bruins are 1-4 in their last five in the series and 2-5 in their last seven at Pittsburgh.
