Pittsburgh Penguins vs New Jersey Devils

The Pittsburgh Penguins find themselves in a challenging position this season, marked by a record of 30-28-9, landing them at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division standings. Their recent struggles, with only three wins in their last ten games, underscore the uphill battle they face. Despite their offensive woes, averaging a modest 2.91 goals per game, the Penguins have found solace in their defensive efforts, allowing just 2.94 goals per game.

Conversely, the New Jersey Devils hold a 32-32-4 record, placing them second from the bottom in the Metropolitan Division. Their recent string of losses, including two consecutive defeats, encapsulates their disappointing campaign. Despite their offensive prowess, highlighted by an average of 3.24 goals per game, the Devils have been plagued by defensive shortcomings, conceding an average of 3.46 goals per game. This season has proven to be a challenging one for the Devils, as they struggle to find balance between their potent offense and leaky defense.
