New York Rangers vs Pittsburgh Penguins 3/25/22 NHL Picks, Predictions, Odds

The Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Friday night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to bounce back from a 4-3 shootout loss at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres last time out. Sidney Crosby leads the Penguins in scoring with 66 points with 23 goals and 43 assists while Jake Guentzel is right behind with 64 points including a team-high 31 goals and 33 assists and Kris Letang has 53 points with a team-high 46 assists. Tristan Jarry’s seen the majority of Pittsburgh’s action between the pipes, going 32-12-6 with a 2.28 GAA and a .923 save percentage this season,

The New York Rangers will look to rebound from a 7-4 loss to New Jersey last time out. Artemi Panarin leads the Rangers in scoring with 73 points including 16 goals and 57 assists while Adam Fox is right behind with 64 points including 54 assists. Chris Kreider has 57 points with a team-high 42 goals and 22 power play goals while Mika Zibanejad also has 65 points with 26 goals and 39 assists. Igor Shesterkin’s seen the majority of New York’s action in goal, going 30-9-3 with a 2.14 GAA and a .936 save percentage this season, while Alexandar Georgiev has gone 9-9-2 with a 3.04 GAA and an .897 save percentage.

Pittsburgh is 22-8 in their last 30 games as a road favorite and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 division games. New York is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home underdog and 20-7 in their last 27 home games while the under is 9-1 in their last 10 games against the Eastern Conference.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m leaning towards the over here. These are two Metro division rivals, but these two like to hurt each other on the scoreboard as well when they face off as the over has hit in 20 of the last 31 meetings with 5 pushes and in 7 of the last 9 meetings between the two at MSG. Look for another high-scoring game here. Give me the over.
