Penguins vs. Rangers: Game 7 prediction
Goal Line: Penguins +1.5 (-195); Rangers -1.5 (+165)
Over/Under: Over 6 (-125); Under 6 (+105)
It’s hard to imagine the Rangers would be in a spot to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs after the way they played in the first four games. But Pittsburgh continues to rack up injuries and the Rangers finally got the production they needed from the their top guys like Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. The goalie matchup heavily favors the Rangers as long as it’s Igor Shesterkin vs. Louis Domingue. But Game 7 has a funny way of making injuries heal and one key member of the Penguins appears ready to return.
Tristan Jarry is practicing today as well. He's getting the bulk of the work while Alex D'Orio and Louis Domingue appear to be spectators primarily.— Seth Rorabaugh (@SethRorabaugh) May 14, 2022
Nothing would offset Sidney Crosby’s expected absence in Game 7, but Jarry in net is a potential game changer. Right now I’ll stick with the home team, but it’s going to be a nail biter.
Pick: Rangers (-150)
Side Bet: Under 6 (+105)
