Stadium: PPG PAINTS Arena (Pittsburgh).
Pittsburgh lost to East - Carolina and Florida and will take on the top team from the Western Conference, the Vegas Golden Knights. Will Mike Sullivan’s team end their losing streak? Let’s pick a few options to bet.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
The Penguins are sitting comfortably in the top 8 of the Eastern Conference, so they don’t have any tournament goals at the season’s end. Matches against major East rivals are more interesting from the standpoint of potential playoff contention. Pittsburgh has shown in the past week that they are capable of a four-game winning streak. Sidney Crosby and his team confidently defeated Tampa Bay 5:1 on the road. Also, they lost in overtime to Carolina 2:3. At home, the squad was close to a set of points in the game with Florida 3:4.
The Golden Knights, like Pittsburgh, are in the top 8 of their conference. But Vegas is only seventh in the West, just five points ahead of ninth-ranked Edmonton. If Vegas continues to perform as erratically as it has, the team will have to work at the end of the regular season to stay in the playoff zone. In the previous game, Peter DeBoer’s team lost away to Philadelphia 1:2.

For Vegas, the game against Pittsburgh will be the second part of a back-to-back. In the first game, Vegas played Buffalo. Regardless of how that meeting ends, the Knights should expect nothing more in Pittsburgh than a regulation time draw. Prediction - Pittsburgh will be closer to victory.
