The Pittsburgh Penguins visit Rexall Place to take the ice with the Edmonton Oilers Friday.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will be shooting for another win when they travel to Rexall Place following a 3-2 victory at Vancouver. It was a complete effort with both ends of the ice contributing with Sydney Crosby scoring with the man advantage with David Perron finding the back of the net for the first time in 2015 while Eric Fehr tallied a shorthanded goal to make Marc-Andre Fleury’s 18 saves a winning performance as the Pens won number five in a row. Daniel Sedin and Jannnik Hansen lit the lamp for the Canucks with Ryan Miller getting the loss with all three goals allowed on 23 shots.

The good news for the Edmonton Oilers is they defeated Philadelphia 4-2 at Rexall Place Tuesday but the bad news is the loss of Connor McDavid to an upper body injury who has five goals and seven helpers on the season. The Oilers still had enough firepower with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scoring twice while Taylor Hall and Matt Hendricks also lit the lamp with Anders Nilsson recording the victory with 20 saves. The Flyers defense wasn’t good with Michal Neuvirth making 45 stops in defeat. Philadelphia received goals from Ryan White and Scott Laughton but that was well short with the defensive struggles.
The Penguins are 5-0 in their last 5 overall and are 4-0 in their last 4 road games while going 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. The over is 3-0-1 in Oilers last 4 vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and is 7-0 in Oilers last 7 vs. Metropolitan while going 5-0-1 in Oilers last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and the Penguins are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. Right now I’ll side with the surging Penguins…
