Penguins vs Panthers Preview
This Penguins team should rank higher than 17th in scoring, but Crosby has returned unfortunately Phil Kessel can’t handle the passes. They are averaging 2.6 goals per game. Over the years the Penguins have been solid on the power play however this season they only rank 13th in power play conversions, averaging 19.6% of their chances.
At the defensive side of the barn the Penguins have been solid thanks to goaltender Fleury. Ranking 11th overall allowing just 2.5 goals per game. In the penalty killing department the Pens rank 5th overall.
Florida ranks 10th in scoring, netting 2.7 or more goals per game, however, it doesn’t make sense with them struggling on the power play. They rank 24th overall just converting 16.6% of their chances.
Defensively much like the Penguins, the Panthers have Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya to thank for the 6th overall ranking. Only giving up 2.4 goals per game or less.
