The Pittsburgh Penguins continue to play some of their best hockey of the season and they've been money in the favorite role. The New Jersey Devils continue to pile up the losses and playing at home hasn't helped all that much. The Penguins also just beat the Devils on Friday, scoring six goals, looking way to comfortable in the victory. The Penguins should like their chances here as well, so give me the road team and the PL for max betting value.
