New York Rangers
The Rangers have lost 4 of their last 6 games and are 25-16 on the road this season, with a 53-24-7 record overall ranking 2nd in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers are 17-11 in division matchups. New York is ninth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.3 assists per game, led by Artemi Panarin with 1.0.
Artemi Panarin has scored 22 goals with 74 assists for the Rangers. Adam Fox has two goals and seven assists over the past 10 games.
In their last 10 games the Rangers are 6-4, averaging 3.5 goals, 6.3 assists, 3.3 penalties and 7.7 penalty minutes while giving up 2.2 goals per game..
The Penguins have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 23-18 at home with a 47-26-11 overall ranking third in the Metropolitan division. The Penguins have allowed 227 goals while scoring 269 for a +47 scoring differential.

In their last 10 games the Penguins are 5-5, averaging 3.5 goals, 6.2 assists, 3.5 penalties and 7.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.9 goals per game.
NY Rangers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Pittsburgh.
NY Rangers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
Pittsburgh are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.
Pittsburgh are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against NY Rangers.
The Penguins got away with the win in overtime in Game 1 but the Rangers bounced back to beat them in Game 2. This should be a close game as the Penguins are 5-1 in the last 6 games playing at home against the Rangers. I'm not expecting a high scoring on this one and with the under cashing the 64% of the time for the Rangers I'm going with the under.
