The Penguins are 0-6 in their last 6 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Rangers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 2-9 in their last 11 overall. The over is 5-2 in Penguins last 7 overall. The under is 9-2 in Rangers last 11 overall. The Penguins are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in New York and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

This line is very confusing, as the Pittsburgh Penguins had their issues against the Bruins, but they've been OK outside of those two games and are without question the better team here. The New York Rangers have goaltending issues, haven't won much dating back to last season and have a recent history of getting beat up by the Penguins. Playing on the road or not, the Penguins should really like their chances in this contest. This line being this cheap is odd. I won't ask questions. Give me the Penguins.
