The New York Rangers are off to their worst start in 37 years with losses in five of their first six games. This looks like another tough matchup as they host the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night.
The Pens have won three of four since taking a 10-1 beating from the Blackhawks on October 5. Sidney Crosby ended a four-game goal-scoring drought by scoring twice in Saturday’s 4-3 victory over visiting Florida and he had four goals and seven points in four meetings with the Rangers last season. We can also note that New York netminder Henrik Lundqvist posted a poor 4.34 GAA against Pittsburgh.
The Penguins are 6-1 in the last seven meetings in New York, and I would not recommend putting any money on the Rangers until they show some life. I like the price we get on the Penguins at here at Madison Square Garden
