Expect A Pittsburgh Win Tonight

01/28/2022 at 11:48am EST

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

The Red Wings play the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight at 7 p.m. in Pittsburgh (Bally Sports). Here are six reasons why the Penguins (-1.5, -108 ) should beat the Red Wings at PPG Paints Arena:

Surging Pens
The Pittsburgh Penguins are 17-2-1 in their last 20 games. They have been strong offensively, defensively and in net. Their 2.53 goals-against average ranks second in the NHL. Their offense also ranks in the Top 10 and coach Mike Sullivan always seems to get the best out of this group.

Red Wings’ road struggles
Coach Jeff Blashill’s group is 5-12-3 on the road. Detroit has won one road game since Dec. 1. The team has struggled on the road all season, unable to generate the same level of confidence it possesses at home. Pittsburgh is not an easy place to play. Only one of Detroit’s five road wins has come against a winning team. They won 2-1 against the Boston Bruins on Nov. 30.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
