Arizona is one of the league's hopeless outsiders. However, they've managed six wins in the last seven meetings. Also, during this stretch, they became the league record holder, having scored a combined 22 goals in three games in a row. Arizona's strong run allowed them to drop from last place in the Western Conference standings to 15th place.
Pittsburgh is already a pretty old team, so we've been expecting a generational change over the last few years, but there's still no sign of it. Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby continue to carry everyone on their shoulders and do well. They missed their regular-season debut when the Penguins were among the league's outsiders. When the leaders returned to action, there were significantly more wins than losses. In the last nine meetings, the team won six and lost only three times. The Pennsylvanians are now in fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings, having almost made the play-offs.
Expert Betting Tips
Arizona and Pittsburgh are approaching the upcoming game in fine form. Of course, the Pennsylvanians are much stronger than the Brick Reds, even though they are currently in a great run. So Mike Sullivan's charges are the favourites of the game. That's why we suggest betting on Pittsburgh win with handicap (-1.5) for 1.93.
Not only has Arizona been playing great and scoring consistently lately, but they've also been playing very openly. For that reason, the Coyotes have scored 55 goals (9.17 average per game) in their previous six meetings. Pittsburgh plays tougher hockey. However, the Penguins are unlikely to go into a deep defensive mode and enjoy a bright and spectacular game against such an aggressive and attacking team. We suggest betting a total over 6.5 for 1.95.
Sidney Crosby continues to be a key player for Pittsburgh. He's already posted 59 points (20 goals + 39 assists) in 50 games played, just one point behind the team's leading scorer. The game against an NHL underdog is a great opportunity to work on his personal stats. We suggest betting on Sidney Crosby Total Over 1.5 for 6.
