The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins are split after two games at Madison Square Garden, and both teams head to PPG Paints Arena for the first round of the NHL Playoffs on Saturday.

All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Rangers vs. Penguins: Game 3 prediction

Rangers: -120
Penguins: +100

While this run of the Penguins is likely the last for the Sidney Crosby/Kris Letang/Evgeni Malkin trio, it should make for a thrilling ride for as long as it lasts. And you can expect the home ice tonight to be rocking for the home team.

While the Pens merely survived that triple overtime Game 1, it was enough to earn the split they needed at MSG. Don’t look too hard into Game 2, as the Pens will be looking for ways to steal games throughout this series as the underdog. And that’s something they can’t do every night, but they can this evening.

Pick: Penguins +100

Over/Under: Over 5.5 -120, Under 5.5 +100

This has been a reasonably wide open series so far, with seven goals scored in the first two games. Expect that trend to continue here.

Pick: Over 5.5 goals -120
