Rangers vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL game

The Rangers welcome the Penguins to Madison Square Garden for the 5th game of their last-16 tie. The Pens are currently in the lead at 3-1. Will New York get a win today? Here's our prediction.

New York Rangers

The Rangers were in good form at the end of the regular season, but their playoffs performance has been quite disappointing. After their high-scoring victory over Pittsburgh in the second game (5:2), the Rangers suffered two crushing defeats (4:7 and 2:7) away. 

In the regular season, Gerard Gallant's team conceded about two or three goals per game on average. But the Rangers played poorly on defense in the last two games and allowed the opponents about 40 shots on goal.

Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh had various problems throughout the regular season, but currently they are demonstrating excellent performance. The Penguins easily convert their scoring chances and make use of their power play pportunities. 

Sidney Crosby is the top scorer for the Pens. He has already chalked up nine points in the playoffs. We would like to mention, that Louis Domingue has been solid in goal while the Pens main goalie Jarry is out injured.

In three out of four games, the Rangers scored at least three goals. The Cops have an excellent attacking line, and the Pens remain without their main goalie. We believe that the Rangers will score over two goals today.

Second bet - Rangers IT over 2.5 goals

Prediction: Rangers IT over 2.5
