The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Sunday in NHL action at the PPG Paints Arena.
The New York Rangers need a win to rebound from a 1-2-1 record. The New York Rangers are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 19 percent of their power play opportunities. Pavel Buchnevich leads New York with two goals, Phillip Di Giuseppe has four assists and Mika Zibanejad has 14 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Igor Shesterkin has given up seven goals on 69 shots faced and Alexandar Georgiev has given up four goals on 43 shots.
The Pittsburgh Penguins look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 27.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Sidney Crosby leads Pittsburgh with three goals, Jake Guentzel has three assists and Kris Letang has 15 shots on goal. Defensively, the Pittsburgh Penguins are allowing 4.2 goals per game and are killing 73.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Tristan Jarry has allowed 12 goals on 67 shots and Casey DeSmith has allowed eight goals on 62 shots.
The Rangers are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 1-7 in their last 8 overall. The Penguins are 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 148-69 in their last 217 home games. The under is 6-2 in Rangers last 8 overall. The over is 5-0 in Penguins last 5 overall. The Rangers are 7-16 in the last 23 meetings. The favorite is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
The New York Rangers are having issues finishing games and losing to the Penguins in a shootout doesn't help the confidence. The Pittsburgh Penguins are finding their groove after early struggles and they've been one of the best home teams in the league the last few years. The Rangers are capable of putting together an honest effort here, but I can't bet against the Penguins and the reasonable price in this spot.
