01:30 Toronto Maple Leafs – Pittsburgh Penguins

Both teams are on top of NHL goal charts, Pittsburgh on top with most goals scored (3.86 goals/game) and Toronto third with 3.31 goals per game. Typically Toronto allows a lot of shots from its opponents and this trend has continued this season (32.9 shots against per game). This puts their goaltender duo Bernier-Reimer under a lot of pressure and not always they have managed to carry their team.

One more thing backing up Over 5.5 goals is Pittsburgh's excellent powerplay which averages at ridiculously high 35.6%. Toronto's powerplay has also been working well this season, 4th in NHL with 24.1%.

If Toronto doesn't manage to stay out of penalty box, they should be in big trouble with Pittsburgh's powerplay. Penguins are favorites to win this potentially high scoring game.
