Total of the Week - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #41 Tuesday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Pittsburgh Penguins vs Montreal Canadiens @ 7:05 ET - The Penguins scored 5 goals the last time they faced the Canadiens. That was an ugly loss for Montreal but the Habs had scored a total of 9 goals in their two most recent meetings with Pittsburgh preceding that one against the Pens. Motnreal's power play has been respectable this season but their penalty kill has struggled. Look for Pittsburgh, even though still without Sidney Crosby, to take advantage. The Penguins are off a 5-3 win and that was on the road. In terms of recent home games, they are on a 7-0-1 run and scored an average of 4 goals per game in regulation of those 8 games. Montreal is off a tight low-scoring win but they entered that one having lost 9 of their past 10 games. The Canadiens allowed an average of 4 goals per game in regulation of those 10 games. The Penguins are likely to have another big game on home ice here in the offensive zone but I expected well-rested Montreal (off since Friday) to be skating well in this one and generating plenty of chances. The Canadiens have played 14 games against teams with a winning record and only 4 of the 14 resulted in an under! The Penguins are on an 18-8 run to the over when they enter a game on a winning streak of 3 or more games. More of the same expected here. Look for plenty of goals in this one. I am aware that Pens goalie Tristan Jarry has played well and Matt Murray has not. Even though it is likely Jarry will play tonight he has still been hit or miss with two of his last four appearances not going well. Now he hasn't played since Friday as Murray got the last start. Carey Price likely to start for the Canadiens here and he struggled the last time he faced the high-powered Pens. The Habs only other option between the pipes is rookie Cayden Primeau and the 20 years old just made his first NHL start last week. 10* OVER the total in Pittsburgh
