Winnipeg Jets vs Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Pick (1/27/15)
The Penguins are currently in a playoff spot but they have been on a down slide going into the All Star break. To make it worse Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Patrik Honrqvist and Kris Letang are all injured. However Letang will pay tonight and Hornqvist is a game time decision.
Crosby and Malkin are still ruled out tonight as the Penguins will try to avoid a season worst 5 game losing streak and it may not come easy against the Winnipeg Jets. But Pittsburgh will be on home ice tonight, somewhere they have succeeded this season even facing adversity.
Winnipeg has won 5 straight games averaging 4.20 goals per game during the streak and have an NHL high with 7 players who have 10 goals or more. Balance on offense equals success in the NHL during the regular season and the playoffs. Don’t forget that come the middle of April.
Mathieu Perreault could return for Winnipeg on Tuesday after missing the last two games with an upper-body injury. Perreault, who scored four times in an 8-2 win over Florida on Jan. 13, is three goals shy of matching his career high.
The Penguins have dominated the Jets in recent years, winning each of the last five match-ups and 20 of the last 23. They downed Winnipeg 4-3 in a shootout Nov. 6 behind a 34-save effort from Fleury and shootout goals from Crosby and Malkin.
Winnipeg allows the most power plays at 4.1 per game
Pittsburgh allows the second most power plays in the league at 3.7 per game
Pittsburgh is third in penalty killing in the league at 87.2%
Winnipeg Jets – TBD
Pittsburgh Penguins – Thomas Greiss
