The New York Rangers will host the Pittsburgh Penguins as part of the regular NHL championship.

New York Rangers

The New Jersey Devils are 7th in the Metropolitan Division and 12th in the Eastern Conference, six points behind the Washington Capitals, battling for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Looking at recent defeats, including a game against the Buffalo Sabres with a scoreline of 2:5, the team shows a lack of confidence, having a home record of 17-18-2 this season. Jesper Bratt stands out in the team, scoring 73 points for the season, while Jack Hughes and Tyler Toffoli lead the team's top scorers, each with 26 goals.

Despite tense defensive moments, especially in the recent meeting with the Sabres where the team suffered a three-goal defeat, the Devils maintain ambitions for future success. The team's average scoring is 3.28 goals per game, using 22.3% of power play opportunities, reflecting their attacking potential. However, defensive results need improvement, with an average of 3.39 goals conceded per game, placing their defence at 27th in the league.

Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins have a record of 33-30-11 and 77 points in the current season, aiming to improve their position in the Eastern Conference. They are 6 points behind the Philadelphia Flyers and 5 behind the Washington Capitals, who are 8th, trying to close the gap to other playoff contenders. In the last game against New York, the Penguins showed their power on the road and won 5:2. Sidney Crosby scored 2 1 in the victory over the Rangers and is averaging at least 1 point per game in his 19th NHL season, equalling Hall of Fame member Wayne Gretzky for this statistic across the league's history.

The Penguins captain and long-time leader has scored points in 5 consecutive games, scoring 4 goals and making 9 assists. But earlier, there was a loss to Columbus despite a two-goal advantage, leading to a defeat of 3:4. This match became a notable event in a series of games where the Penguins gained points in 5 of the last 6 matches despite an overall record of 6-6 in the last 12 games. Sidney Crosby, with 37 goals and 44 assists, continues to be the team's leading player, demonstrating outstanding results.

Head to Head

New Jersey has twice defeated Pittsburgh with an identical scoreline of 5:2 earlier this season, totalling 7 consecutive victories in their head-to-head meeting with the Penguins. The Penguins last won on February 12, 2022.
