In a game from NHL, we will see New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins.
The New Jersey Devils finished the games before the All-star break with 3 consecutive losses. They are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks in a game where Marcus Johansson gave them the lead early but then the Ducks came back to win it. The Ducks showed great effectiveness, scoring 3 goals on just 14 shots.
The Pittsburgh Penguins, on the other hand, finished with 3 losses in their last 4 games. They are even coming off a 7-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights. They were abysmal defending their goal and it would be very disappointing if they perform like this one more time. Casey DeSmith gave up 6 goals on 34 shots which is nearly a goal on every 5 attempts.
The Penguins’ last few games have also finished with many goals in both sides’ nets. Given the fact that the Devils’ defense is not that better, I also expect it to allow many goals. Still, the Devils seem to be the better team and they showed great character last time out. I expect them to win this shootout.
