Pittsburgh Penguins DFS Spin

Tristan Jarry surrendered five goals on 31 shots in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. By the time Nathan MacKinnon had scored his second goal against Jarry -- one in each of the first two periods -- the Penguins were down 3-1 on the scoreboard with 28 minutes remaining in regulation. While they would gamely fight back with several more goals over the remainder of the contest, Jarry just couldn't keep Colorado's offense down long enough for his own offense's goals to make a lasting dent the deficit. Perhaps showing a little fatigue down the stretch, this was Jarry's second five-goal-allowed showing in his last five starts. He has allowed at least three goals in four of his last five trips to the crease. Showing next on Pittsburgh's schedule, a Thursday meeting with the Rangers.

New York Rangers DFS Spin

Alexandar Georgiev stopped 20-of-21 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils. Nicely done by Georgiev on Tuesday. Despite his strong overall performance, the 26-year-old netminder never had a real shot at a shutout, as the lone goal he gave up (to Yegor Sharangovich) was scored relatively early in the first period. Georgiev had surrendered four goals in each of his last two starts before rebounding in strong fashion against New Jersey. Showing next on the schedule for the Rangers, a Thursday meeting with the Penguins.

Penguins vs. Rangers Betting Prediction

The over is 21-7-5 in the last 33 meetings between these two teams and is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings at Madison Square Garden. The over is also 5-2 in the Penguins’ last seven games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games when their opponent allowed two goals or less in its previous game and is 4-0 in the Rangers’ last four games when their opponent allowed five goals or more in its previous contest.
