Looking at the games on the board for tonight this game stands out the most. The injury bug has grabbed the Pittsburgh Penguins by the throat and has not let go yet. No question about it when healthy the Penguins are one of the best teams in the league. However, with players like Chris Kunitz and Kris Letang out for tonight’s game the Penguins become very vulnerable. 60% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Penguins tonight. However, the Rangers line has moved from 1.85 to 1.77. Which indicates “sharp” money may very well be on the Rangers tonight. The feeling is that the sharp is coming in on the Rangers because of the home ice and the Penguins injury list. The Rangers have got the best of the Penguins in the last five games and I think they do it again tonight. Best of Luck!!!
