Aleksander Barkov had a goal and two assists, Anthony Duclair added a goal and an assist. Noel Acciari, Carter Verhaeghe, and Patric Hornqvist also scored during a four-goal second period.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Pittsburgh's last 6 games at home.
The Panthers are on a winning streak and have scored 6 goals in each of their last 2 games but against poor defenses like the Sabres and The Devils. The Penguins are allowing 2.6 goals in their last 10 games and are 9-1 in their last 10 games when playing at home against Florida. I expect a close game and the home team should get the win.
