The Golden Knights faced off against the New York Rangers in the last game and they were able to secure the 5-1 victory. Ivan Barbashev had a strong game putting up two goals. Brett Howden and Jonathan Marchessault both also scored a goal and added an assist. The Golden Knights on the season are averaging 3.13 goals while their defense is giving up 2.67 goals per game. The defense is ranked 7th in the NHL and they are going to need the defense to step up here. Mark Stone has scored 15 goals and added 31 assists so far this season. 

Penguins Have Won Three of Four

The Penguins have played well heading into this game and they have won three of the last four games. In the last game against the Seattle Kraken, the Penguins scored three goals and that was enough for the victory. Sidney Crosby had a strong game scoring two goals. The Penguins are averaging 3.02 goals while their defense is giving up 2.67 goals per game. The defense is ranked 7th in the league but the offense has been inconsistent for this team. Crosby on the season has scored 26 goals and added 20 assists. The Penguins will take on the Coyotes after this game.

Golden Knights vs Penguins Betting Prediction

These are both defenses that have been good all season and that is going to be the case again here. Both teams are giving up only 2.67 goals per game and they are both going to lockdown in this game. Especially the Penguins are going to struggle to score here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash here with ease.
