The Pittsburgh Penguins hit the road and will visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. These teams met 4 times last season and they tied 2-2. The Bruins will look to remain unbeaten at home as they have won 5 straight games in Boston.
The Penguins have won 4 of their first 6 games this season and are 1-2 on the road. Last season they were 22-10-5 on the road with a 42-22-10 overall ranking third in the Metropolitan division. The Penguins were 12-8-2 against opponents in the Metropolitan. Pittsburgh ranked fourth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.7 assists per game, led by Kris Letang with 0.8.
Letang led the Penguins with 55 total assists and has 62 points. Sidney Crosby had 11 points over the last 10 games for Pittsburgh.
In their last 10 games the Penguins are 6-4, averaging 4.9 goals, 5.9 assists, 3.1 penalties and seven penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game with a .902 save percentage.
The Bruins have won 6 of their first 7 games and are 5-0 at home so far this season. Last game at home, they beat the Stars 3-1 where Taylor Hall scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, David Pastrnak added a power-play goal and an assist and Linus Ullmark stopped 30 shots.
David Pastrnak leads the Bruins with 5 goals, 7 assists and 12 points over the last 7 games for Boston.
In their last 10 games the Bruins are 7-3, averaging 3.7 goals, 5.2 assists, 4.9 penalties and 12.5 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game with a .914 save percentage.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Pittsburgh's last 5 games.
Pittsburgh are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against Boston.
Pittsburgh are 2-13 SU in their last 15 games when playing on the road against Boston.
Pittsburgh are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.
The total has gone OVER in 11 of Boston's last 15 games.
Boston are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.
Boston are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games at home.
The Penguins have been pretty good so far this season scoring an average of 3.6 goals per game but they have struggled defensively allowing 3 goals per game and will visit the Bruins who are also playing great offense scoring over 4 goals per game and have won 5 straight games at home. The Penguins are playing good on the road but they have lost 2 games in overtime so I expect them to give the Bruins quite a fight but It's hard to go against the Bruins at home at this moment so I think the over is the safest bet.
PICK: Over 6.5 (-110)
