Winnipeg vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL fixture
Winnipeg are 5th in the West with a total of 22 points. The Jets recently had a winning streak of three games, which included a victory over Edmonton (5: 2). However, in the last two matches, the Jets lost the return game at Edmonton (1:2 SO) and then couldn't beat Vancouver, either (2:3).
Winnipeg earn most of their points at home, where they suffered only one defeat in regulation and on average scored four goals per game. Kyle Connor has already chalked up over 20 points and is one of the best scorers in the league.
Pittsburgh are trying hard to get into the playoffs zone as they have mounted an away winning streak. The Penguins crushed Montreal (6:0) and beat Toronto (2:0), in both cases delivering fantastic performance on the defensive. Mike Sullivan's men lost only two away games in regulation so far.
Sidney Crosby hasn't been productive at all, even though he usually plays around 18 minutes per game.
In 2 out of 3 head-to-head games, Pittsburgh scored more than 2 goals.
In the last 2 head-to-head games, Pittsburgh won the first period.
