The Pittsburgh Penguins are set to take on the New York Rangers in an exciting NHL matchup, and KingPin.pro has all the latest NHL picks for this game. After a strong showing from Jake Guentzel in their last game against the Montreal Canadiens, the Penguins will look to bounce back against a tough Rangers team.
The Pittsburgh Penguins currently hold a record of 34-23-10 and sit fourth in the Metropolitan Division. Sidney Crosby continues to be a major force for the team, with 29 goals and 52 assists on the season. Jason Zucker has also been a key contributor, with nine goals in his last 10 games. However, the Penguins will need to tighten up defensively if they want to come away with a win, as they've allowed 215 goals this season.
The New York Rangers have been on a hot streak lately, with a record of 38-19-10 and sitting third in the Metropolitan Division. Mika Zibanejad has been a standout player for the team, with 34 goals and 36 assists on the season. Chris Kreider has also been a strong contributor, with four goals and two assists in his last 10 games. The Rangers have a strong record of 33-5-1 when scoring three or more goals.
The Rangers will be without Ryan Lindgren (upper body), while the Penguins will be missing Nick Bonino (kidney), Dmitry Kulikov (lower body), and Ryan Poehling (upper body).
This is set to be a close game, with both teams having some key players to watch. However, the Rangers have been in better form lately and have a strong record when scoring multiple goals. As such, KingPin.pro is giving the edge to the New York Rangers in this matchup.
