NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview: New York Rangers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

New York Rangers (M3) vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (M2) 
Series Price: Pittsburgh -175/New York +155 
Game 1 Price: Pittsburgh -145 O/U 5


The injury list is long for both squads entering this series. The New York Rangers have several key players listed as questionable including Eric Staal, Mats Zuccarello, Dan Girardi and captain Ryan McDonagh. None of them are a sure thing to be in the lineup for Game 1 tonight. The Pittsburgh Penguins also have multiple players listed as questionable too including both of their goalies Marc-Andre Fleury and Matthew Murray. It appears Fleury (concussion) has been upgraded to probable.

Pittsburgh closed the regular season as the hottest team in the NHL going 14-2 in its last 16 games. The run was impressive considering they were without Evgeni Malkin who will remain out for the beginning of the postseason. The Penguins put together a strong second line with Nick Bonino, Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin late in the season. It was a nice compliment to the first-line trio of Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist and Chris Kunitz.

New York knocked off Pittsburgh in five games in the first round of the playoffs last year but the Penguins held the upper hand in the regular season going 3-1. New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist allowed 12 goals in his last three starts in the regular season against the Penguins. Of all the Eastern Conference playoff series, this one has the greatest potential for lots of offense. Pittsburgh was 6-2-1 O/U in its last nine games and New York was 6-0-4 O/U in its last 10. This also have the chance to be a lengthy series but I think the Penguins have shown me enough to call for their advancement in seven games.
