In the pair of Kings – Penguins the first ones have not hoped for anything this season, so they will spend the deadline quietly, and they already gave away who they wanted to give. As for the Pittsburgh, the Penguins are only just beginning. After the defeat from Washington, the Pens lost first place in the Metropolitan Division, but intend to continue to compete for it, and then from the Stanley Cup. One of the season’s outsiders against Pittsburgh. Will this match be an easy walk for Pens despite playing away? Let’s see more statistics.

Pittsburgh Penguins

The Penguins have some problems with the game – Sullivan’s wards have been losing for three consecutive matches in regular time, missing at least four goals. Away over the past five games have suffered three defeats in regular time, and in an equal game with the Leafs could not even be abandoned. Yes, Sullivan definitely should reconsider the tactics of the game for his team and pay more attention to the game in defense.

Los Angeles Kings

Todd McLellan’s wards have already played three games in a row in their arena and the last two have lost. In a segment of 10 matches, only three victories were won at home, however, in the regular time, scoring five goals. McLellan now aims to maximize points so that his team is not the last in the division, but his desire does not always coincide with the desire of the players.

Penguins vs Kings Prediction

For Mike Sullivan’s team, a match with an outsider of the Pacific Division is a good opportunity to interrupt their series of defeats and regain leadership in the Metropolitan Division. Pittsburgh is no doubt a playoff team, while the Kings are the second worst team in the Western Conference. Our prediction is the victory of Pittsburgh. We think that the fight will be with a small number of goals, as the Pittsburgh has been having problems lately, including the realization of the moments. Los Angeles does not have a large number of goals in the match and occupies the last line of the West. So, you can bet on LA +1.5 Puck Line or Total Under 5.5
