Preview

The Pittsburgh Penguins continue on the road and will visit the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. These teams met twice last season and the Canucks beat the Pens in both games 2-1 at home and 4-0 on the road.

Pittsburgh Penguins

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.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks have won 4 of their first 5 games of the season and are 3-1 at home so far ranking 1st in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Carolina Hurricanes where they came up with the victory 3-2 in overtime with a goal from Tyler Toffoli.

Nazem Kadri has scored 4 goals with 5 assists  and 9 points for the Canucks. Rasmus Andersson leads the team with six assists over the past 5 games.

In their last 10 games the Canucks are 5-5, averaging 3 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Pittsburgh are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

Pittsburgh are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games against Vancouver.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Pittsburgh's last 7 games on the road.

Pittsburgh are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Vancouver.

Vancouver are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vancouver's last 5 games against Pittsburgh.

Vancouver are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Penguins have struggled lately losing 3 of their last 5 games and scored only 1 goal in the loss against the Flames. The Canucks are coming from their first win of the season but was against one of the worst teams in the league. However, with the Penguins struggling on the road I think the Canucks can keep this game close enough to cover the puck line or even win the game.

PICK: Canucks +1.5 (-160)
