Pittsburgh won 3-2 in a shootout Saturday night at home versus Chicago to improve to 10-6-1 on the season. The Penguins prevailed 2-1 in the shootout as Jake Guentzel and Jared McCann found the back of the net. Pittsburgh trailed 2-0 in the second period before Guentzel scored off assists from Evgeni Malkin and McCann at the 3:56 mark.

Rangers fall to Panthers in shootout

New York lost a 6-5 decision at home Sunday against Florida to drop to 7-6-2 on the season. The Rangers lost the shootout 2-1 as only Kaapo Kakko tickled the twine for the hosts. Ryan Lindgren gave New York a 1-0 lead 5:06 into the contest with assists going to Ryan Strome and Artemi Panarin. The Panthers scored twice late in the first to take a 2-1 advantage. The Rangers evened the score on a Filip Chytil goal 1:28 into the second period with assists courtesy of Pavel Buchnevich and Chris Kreider. Florida took a 3-2 lead at the 15:18 mark of the second, but New York answered less than a minute later on a Brady Skjei unassisted goal. Kakko scored on the power play two minutes after that to give the home team a 4-3 lead with assists going to Strome and Tony DeAngelo. The Panthers tied it again at 4-4 a minute later, but Kreider scored on the power play with 1:25 to go in the second to put the Rangers back ahead with assists from Adam Fox and Panarin. Florida scored the tying goal with 12:59 left in the third period before eventually winning it in the shootout. Henrik Lundqvist took the loss as he surrendered five goals on 35 shots.

NHL Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

The Penguins are 4-0 in their last four games as a favorite. Pittsburgh is 6-2 in its last eight games following a win.

New York

The Rangers are 4-1 in their last five games as an underdog. New York is 6-13 in its last 19 home games.

Prediction:

This New York team has some fight and did get to stay at home after losing Sunday. Look for another strong Rangers effort, but this time ending in a win. The Penguins narrowly beat a mediocre Blackhawks squad at home a few days ago and now draw a tougher matchup on the road. I like New York to get the job done tonight.

NHL DAILY PREDICTION: NEW YORK RANGERS +105
