Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins Predictions

Score Prediction Penguins 4 Bruins 3

This isn't the same scenario that we had from Washington/NY Islanders over the weekend, as the 1-0 result from Pittsburgh/Boston on Sunday didn't require OT, but since going to the 'over' worked so well in that Caps/Islanders game after the 1-0 game, I see no reason to stray from that line of thinking tonight.

A 1-6 O/U record in the head-to-head meetings could be considered a deterrent, but the one 'over' did finish with a 7-5 score, so it's not like these two teams aren't capable of scoring goals. Boston is on a 5-1-1 O/U run after scoring two or less in their last outing, and off a shutout win this year, Pittsburgh is 1-1 O/U but those two games have finished with an average of 7 goals per game. I'm hoping that average holds true tonight and we get a 3-3 game and let the ML result land where it will.
