The New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins meet Tuesday in NHL action at the PPG Paints Arena.
The New Jersey Devils need a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 12.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Miles Wood leads New Jersey with 14 goals, Jesper Bratt has 20 assists and Jack Hughes has 113 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 70.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 83 goals on 827 shots faced and Scott Wedgewood has allowed 34 goals on 364 shots.
The Pittsburgh Penguins look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 22.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Jake Guentzel leads Pittsburgh with 20 goals, Sidney Crosby has 33 assists and Bryan Rust has 130 shots on goal. Defensively, the Pittsburgh Penguins are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 76.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Tristan Jarry has allowed 77 goals on 854 shots and Casey DeSmith has allowed 42 goals on 470 shots.
The Devils are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 7-22 in their last 29 overall. The Penguins are 39-16 in their last 55 home games and 16-7 in their last 23 overall. The over is 7-2 in Devils last 9 overall. The over is 6-2 in Penguins last 8 overall. The Devils are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The New Jersey Devils are going through probably their worst stretch of the season right now and the defensive effort doesn't seem to improve. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been dominant on their home ice and they've been even better in the favorite role, where they're pretty much printing money. The Penguins have won three of the five meetings against the Devils this season, and that includes outscoring them 11-6 in the two meetings this month. Give me the Penguins and the PL for max betting value.
