Pittsburgh is still in a tough place, but they are still trying to stay in a clash for the Cup Final Eight. The Penguins are showing modest results on the road, but sometimes, they have bursts of activity that allow them to stay. For example, they had a five-game winning streak in November. They then lost four games in regulation over a five-game stretch but have picked up points in their last three meetings: Toronto and Tampa Bay won 3:2 and 4:2, and Nashville lost 3:2 in overtime. Mike Sullivan's team is 12th in the Eastern Conference standings.
Things are no better for Philadelphia, which has been the league's underdog for the past few years, not even trying to make a playoff motivation. The Flyers also had a modest start to the current regular season. In mid-November, they decided to take a page out of their Pennsylvania neighbor's book and went on a 5-game winning streak, beating some difficult opponents along the way. However, the good fortune was short-lived as John Tortorella's wards lost four of their next five games, only beating the Islanders 1:0. That was good enough for tenth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are neighbors in the Eastern Conference standings and outside the playoffs, which could be better for them. The Penguins are the favorites in the first Pennsylvania derby of the season. In their favor is a better current form, as they have picked up points in three straight games and have won seven of the last eight meetings.
Not only has Pittsburgh been beating Philadelphia regularly lately, but they have also been throwing a lot of pucks at their main competitor's goal. In the last six games, the Penguins have scored 25 goals, averaging 4.17 per game - a very high result that speaks to the offensive efficiency of Mike Sullivan's wards.
