The Bruins are 0-5 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The Penguins are 156-71 in their last 227 home games and 5-0 in their last 5 overall. The under is 6-0-1 in Bruins last 7 overall. The over is 4-1-2 in Penguins last 7 overall. The Bruins are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Boston Bruins aren't going to stay in this funk forever, but they're a tough sell with an offense that's been ice cold over the last week and they didn't look great last night. The Pittsburgh Penguins are playing their best hockey of the season with six straight wins and they've always won at a high clip on their home ice. The Bruins have still won two of the three meetings this season against the Penguins, but I'm backing the home team and the cheap price here.
