Penguins vs. Rangers: Game 7 prediction

Goal Line: Penguins +1.5 (-195); Rangers -1.5 (+165)
PIT: +130
NYR: -150
Over/Under: Over 6 (-125); Under 6 (+105)

It’s hard to imagine the Rangers would be in a spot to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs after the way they played in the first four games. But Pittsburgh continues to rack up injuries and the Rangers finally got the production they needed from the their top guys like Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. The goalie matchup heavily favors the Rangers as long as it’s Igor Shesterkin vs. Louis Domingue. But Game 7 has a funny way of making injuries heal and one key member of the Penguins appears ready to return.

Nothing would offset Sidney Crosby’s expected absence in Game 7, but Jarry in net is a potential game changer. Right now I’ll stick with the home team, but it’s going to be a nail biter.

Pick: Rangers (-150)
Side Bet: Under 6 (+105)
