The Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks meet in NHL action from the United Center on Sunday.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to build on their 3-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets last time out. Sidney Crosby has a team-high 23 points on 9 goals and 14 assists, while Evgeni Malkin has 19 points on 7 goals and 12 assists. Jake Guentzel also has 16 points with a season-high 10 goals and 7 assists. Tristan Jarry has gone 6-3-2 with a 3.60 GAA and a .895 save percentage, while Casey DeSmith is 2-4-1 with a 2.86 GAA and a .910 save percentage in goal for Pittsburgh this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to snap a three-game losing streak after a 6-1 loss to Boston last time out. Patrick Kane leads Chicago with 13 points with 11 assists, while Jonathan Toews has 11 points with 8 goals. Max Domi also adds 12 points with 4 goals and 8 assists this season as well. Petr Mrazek has gone 1-3-1 with a 3.16 GAA and an .889 save percentage, while Alex Stalock is 3-2-1 with a 2.93 GAA and a .889 save percentage .914 in goal for Chicago this season.
Pittsburgh is 4-9 in their last 13 games overall and 0-5 in their last 5 shutout games while the over is 18-8 in their last 26 games overall. Chicago is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 1-8 in their last 9 Sunday games while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 straight games.
I understand the reasoning for supporting either side in this game, but I’m looking here. I don’t trust any set of goaltenders as much as I can throw them and Pittsburgh started to find some semblance of offense in their last few games. On the other hand, Chicago is capable of scoring a couple of goals and I think this game is set for goals. Give me the one over here.
