Penguins Look To Continue Wild Ride

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/24/2013 7:01:39 PM

When the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Montreal Canadiens 7-6 in overtime at the beginning of March, it was nothing more than a wild sports betting contest filled with highlight reel goals and awful defensive play. Fast-forward to this week’s rematch between these teams and the Penguins still haven’t lost a game, putting together an incredible 10-straight wins to climb to the top of the Eastern Conference standings. Pittsburgh has found ways to win games every way possible during its outstanding run, and is ready for what should be another wild ride against the Canadiens this Tuesday.

After finishing with the worst record in the conference a year ago, Montreal has completely turned things around under head coach Michel Therrien and is now challenging for the best record in the East. The Canadiens nearly came out on top of what was a wild ride the first time around, and will look to avenge that overtime loss.

Nobody knows the Penguins’ potential better than Therrien, who coached the team when Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin first broke in to the league as young superstars. Therrien handled that situation well, and is doing an excellent job in his first season back in Montreal. The system that Therrien has employed is a big reason for the team’s success early on, as the Canadiens rank in the top-10 in both goals per game and goals per game allowed this season. Therrien has gotten the chance to work with another pair of impressive rookies in Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher, who have each excelled in their first year in the league.

No team has scored more goals this online betting season than Pittsburgh, and it’s no surprise that a healthy Crosby is among the NHL point leaders with 50 on the year. Crosby has helped make Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis better players on the team’s top line, and with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal right behind him on the second line, the Penguins are as dangerous up front as any team in the league. The problems that Pittsburgh has run in to have been at the defensive end, where Marc-Andre Fleury has struggled with his consistency. Fleury’s 2.38 goals against average is solid, but there have been too many highs and lows this season.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

As good as the Canadiens have looked under Therrien, they are still a class below the Penguins with everything that team can do. Pittsburgh has the league’s best powerplay and has scored more goals than any other team in the NHL, so it will be interesting to see what they have in store for an encore after scoring seven goals against Montreal in their first meeting of the season.
