NY Rangers at Pittsburgh -160 O/U 6
The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins are both playing good hockey right now and an offensive surge on both sides is the main reason for it. The Rangers have scored 3+ goals in 8 of their last 10 games. Pittsburgh during their current four- game win streak have potted 19 goals during that span. The series history between these two teams points to one high scoring game after another. The Over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 head-to-head meetings overall between the Rangers and Penguins including 5-0-1 to the Over in the last six games between the clubs here in Pittsburgh. Henrik Lundqvist gave up five goals to Pittsburgh when he faced them earlier this season in a game that flew Over the total ending up 5-4 in favor of the Penguins. Pittsburgh has been forced to start their backup goalie Tristan Jarry each night out and he has been strong so far in relief of injured #1 netminder Matt Murray but he was also the benefactor of facing the offensively challenged Buffalo Sabres in each of his last two starts and they are one of the worst offensive teams in the NHL. This will be a tougher task for Jarry tonight facing a NY Rangers team that has been finding the back of the net with regularity in recent weeks. Expect goals in bunches and the recent over trending series history to continue tonight.
