Pens Have Been Perfect After a Loss

Crosby Malkin Penguins

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away then perhaps a visit to the big apple will be the cure the Pittsburgh Penguins need to get back on track after getting beaten up by the Rangers on Saturday. The Pens lost the game 4-2 and were out-hit 57 to 25, but they’ve shown tremendous bounce back ability over the past few months, going a perfect 12-0 following a loss.

Taking a bite out of the Rangers at Madison Square Garden is something Pittsburgh has grown accustomed to lately, as they’ve won two straight at MSG with wins on March 13 and 27. The Pens are also hot on the road, as they’ve gone 8-1 in their last nine game outside of the Steel City.

The Rangers enter the home game as a slight underdog, opening the day at EVEN money with Pittsburgh at -110. This is a spot the Rangers have performed well in, as they’re 8-3 in their last 11 games as home dogs.
