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.
