Penguins Bring Red-Hot Offense To MSG

The Pittsburgh Penguin offense has been staggering good lately, which has led the Pens to seven victories in their past eight games. Sidney Crosby and company have been averaging 3.8 goals per game in their last eight outings, with the team scoring five or more on three occasions. The streaking Penguins look to continue their roll when they visit the New York Rangers Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 11-4 SU in their past 15 games against the Penguins.
  • The UNDER is 4-2 in the last six meetings between the Penguins and Rangers.
  • The Rangers have scored a combined 14 goals in their past three games, all wins.

This offensive onslaught from the Penguins has come despite the absence of Evgeni Malkin, who has been placed on the IR with an arm injury. Most recently it was Phil Kessel and Nick Bonino who stepped their games up, as the duo both had five points in the Penguins last game against the Detroit Red Wings.  

The Penguins will likely need to solve Henrik Lundqvist though, a proposition they have struggled with in the past. Lundqvist has a 1.95 goals against average in his past seven games against the Penguins while picking up the win in five of those contests.
