The Canadian Olympic gold medal hockey team´s MVP , Sidney Crosby is the man of the hour while at the same time he is the starting forward for Pittsburgh, call it a secret weapon if you may.

NHL – Montreal Canadiens vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
The Metropolitan division leaders Pittsburgh Penguins host the Montreal Canadians this Thursday Night in the NHL.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

 

Montreal is playing against one of its own in this game but that will not get in the way, this is the NHL and the goal now is to win the Stanley Cup with your respected team. The Canadians are led on offense by P.K. Subban who has 39 points this season to go along with his 31 assists, he is the center man that really accounts for most of the teams goals, his ability to go unseen and be in the right place is impressive, Pittsburgh will really have to make sure he is in their eyes at all times.

Sidney Crosby leads the Penguins with 78 points, 50 assists and 28 goals this season alone, he is on route for another MVP award with the way he is playing and the best part of it is that he is getting his teammates involved, attracting the double coverage to then pass the puck and get the score. This team also moves up and down the ice very well, they are clean but very aggressive, the important part for them in this one will be penalty minutes, they need to control that to win it all.

Pittsburgh is -210 in this game and normally anything over -190 I take the dog +1.5 goals because of the juice but this is one of those cases that the favorite is simply better in all aspects and will deliver possibly a shutout in this one.
