The Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils meet in NHL action from the Prudential Center on Sunday night.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to build on a 6-4 win over the Devils last time out. Sidney Crosby leads the Penguins in scoring with 47 points including 16 goals and a team-high 31 assists while Jake Guentzel has 42 points with a team-high 17 goals and 25 apples. Kris Letang has 34 points with 27 assists and Bryan Rust has 31 points with 16 goals this season. As a team, Pittsburgh is averaging 3.4 goals per game on 29.7 shots with a 22.3% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.8 goals on 29.6 shots with a 76.4% success rate killing off penalties this season.
The New Jersey Devils will look to rebound from their loss to the Penguins last time out. Pavel Zacha leads the Devils in scoring with 25 points incluring 10 goals and 15 assists while Jesper Bratt and Ty Smith each have a team-high 19 assists this season. Myles Wood also has a team-high 13 goals this season. As a team, New Jersey is averaging 2.6 goals on 31.3 shots per game with a 71.7% success rate on the PK this season.
Pittsburgh is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win and 7-2 in their last 9 games overall while the over is 4-0 in the road games. New Jersey is 8-20 in their last 28 games overall and 17-38 in their last 55 home games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
These two teams simply don’t like each other, and say what you want about the Devils and how bad they’ve been at times this season, but they’ve battled the Penguins hard so far this season and it’s resulted in a lot of low-scoring games. I think this game ends up being no different as the Penguins have turned it on defensively and MacKenzie Blackwood can keep the Devils in the game on his own. I could see a 3-1 or 3-2 game here, so give me the under in this one.
