Pittsburgh are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games.
The Rangers have been struggling lately and are on a 3 game losing streak but they dominated the Penguins last season beating them 3 times. The Penguins have won their last 2 games but they have been so inconsistent so it's really hard to trus them even at home where they hold a 5-6 record. The Rangers are the better team so I think they will bounce back and avoid a 4th straight loss. Take the Rangers.
