The Pittsburgh Penguins welcome the Detroit Red Wings to town for a Thursday NHL matchup.

The Detroit Red Wings stayed hot with a 4-1 win against visiting Pittsburgh for 6thconsecutive victory. Phil Kessel lit the lamp for the Penguins in the first off of assists from Jake Guentzel and Sydney Crosby.

Matt Murray was charged with three goals on 25 shots to absorb the loss that dropped his record to 28-14-5 with a 2.69 goals against average.

The Red Wings saw Tyler Bertuzzi score in the first and second while Anthony Mantha found the back of the net twice in the third period including an empty netter.

Bertuzzi also had an assist and Dylan Larkin added three helpers for Detroit and Jimmy Howard picked up the win with a 38 save performance.

Red Wings are 6-0 in their last 6 overall and Red Wings are 5-0 in their last 5 games following a win and Red Wings are 6-0 in their last 6 games as an underdog.

Penguins are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and Penguins are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Atlantic and Penguins are 120-53 in their last 173 home games.

Red Wings are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and home team is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings and over is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings.

Detroit is really hot but the line says they don’t have much of a chance. Despite the first game of this home-and-home series going under, I’ll go over…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
