Online Hockey Betting Odds:
The Penguins swim into this evening’s contest sporting a 25-15-6 record that ranks them 4th overall in the Metropolitan Division. The Guins recent woes ultimately caused them to fall out of the Top 3 in the division, but Pittsburgh should be able to jump back in with a solid rebound. Right now the club is sitting on 56 points on the season, which places them just 2 shy of tying with the 3rd seeded New York Islanders. However, it’s pretty clear that Pittsburgh is in a hole since they’ve lost the last two games 5-2 consecutively. But can we count on the Penguins bouncing back against the weak Yotes this Friday night? Well Pittsburgh is 7-2-1 in their last 10 meetings against Arizona. On top of that, Pittsburgh enters with the 5th best offense in the league while the Coyotes rank 28th in scoring.
Players to Watch: Sidney Crosby (20 G, 35 A, 55 PTS.), Phil Kessel (18 G, 33 A, 51 PTS.), and Evgeni Malkin (14 G, 36 A, 50 PTS.).
Entering this Friday night contest sporting a 21-22-3, it’s pretty clear that Arizona is not having the season they were hoping for. However, as previously mentioned, Arizona is flying high with a 4-1 record in their last 5. The first time these two met, Arizona fell to Pittsburgh 4-0 in regulation. Naturally they’ll be looking to avenge that loss but there’s no guarantee they’ll get it. But at the end of the day, Arizona is playing at home here and they’re clearly playing better hockey as of late. The odds are sticking with Pittsburgh here, but Arizona could shock the nation tonight.
Players to Watch: Clayton Keller (9 G, 23 A, 32 PTS.), Alex Galchenyuk (8 G, 17 A, 25 PTS.), and Oliver Ekman-Larsson (6 G, 18 A, 24 PTS.).
