Team News

The battle for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference looks set to go down to the wire. Pittsburgh will be one of the teams involved in that battle, and they will be looking to record a second straight win when they take on the Red Wings on Tuesday.

Over their previous ten, they have recorded four wins. However, they have suffered five regulation defeats over that period. Their record on the road would also be a pressing concern ahead of this game, as they have gone 16-16-5 away from Pittsburgh this term.

Meanwhile, the Red Wings come into this game sitting 13th in the Eastern Conference standings. They have won just three of their last ten games, suffering seven regulation defeats over that same period. They are already out of the mix for a playoff finish this term, as they are averaging just .493.

The Red Wings have lost each of their last two games in the NHL. Their most recent loss was suffered away from home over the weekend, as they were easily beaten by a 3-0 scoreline by the Philadelphia Flyers.


The pressure will be on the Penguins for this game on the road. We find it hard to support them, given their record away from home. Therefore, a chance will be taken on the Red Wings.
