Pittsburgh Penguins Preview
Pittsburgh is one of the most inconsistent teams in the NHL. It’s sad but true, it’s been their identity since 2009. And it’s same to assume Ovechkin is much better than Crosby. I only bring that up because the NHL over hyped that “rivalry”.
Pittsburgh ranks 26th in scoring at 2.3 goals per game and 14th in power play conversions 18.7%, while on defense they come in at 9th in goals allowed 2.4 goals per game and 5th in penalty killing department, 84.8%.
Tampa Bay Lightning Preview
Tyler Johnson is back and it’s only up hill for this good American boy.
Tampa Bay ranks 17th overall in scoring, potting 2.5 goals per game and 21st in power play conversions at 17.7%, while on defense they rank 4th in goals allowed, giving up just 2.3 goals per game and 21st in penalty killing department at 79.2%
