Scoring at Will

Scoring at Will

Penguins versus Maple Leafs?  Didn’t I just write about this on Saturday?  LOL!  Anyway, the Pittsburgh Penguins lead the NHL in scoring boasting 3.6 goals per game.  The Maple Leafs aren’t “shabby” either registering 3.0 goals per game.  If you saw the Bruins game the other night, you saw the game of the year.  Tonight’s game will live up to all the hype as well, and be a scoring fiasco. Do not expect to see Evgeni Malkin back tonight.  Do expect to see Marc-Andre Fleury in goal against James Reimer.  Since Fleury tends to give up a soft goal or two, expect a high scoring game.  See the particulars below courtesy of ESPN:

Prediction: The Penguins will win their 7th in a row as winning streak still continues. Are the penguins trying to catch the Miami Heat?  Doubtful! Take the Penguins to win and over 6 total goals.  The Penguins will reign in Air Canada.  Penguins 5 Leafs 3.
