Pittsburgh just snapped a five-game losing streak, while New Jersey has lost six of seven. But the Devils have allowed 18 goals their last three games, and my projections call for the Penguins to take advantage and get a road win.

Pittsburgh’s Casey DeSmith playing great, Check. New Jersey’s Keith Kinkaid playing great, Check. New Jersey in a scoring funk with 2.4 goals/game in its past 10, Check. Go Under.
