The Penguins are placed fifth in the Metropolitan Division standings with 54 points. They come into this game against the Ducks on the back of a 2-1 win and will look to rally for a better season ahead.
Meanwhile, the Ducks have had one of their poorest seasons so far and are placed last in the Western Conference Atlantic Division with 40 points. On the contrary, they come into this game with a win and will certainly look to play with the same intensity as they did in their previous game.

Penguins vs Ducks NHL Key Stats
The Penguins have done well to score over 160 goals so far this season. Contributions from Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel have certainly helped the team with 44 goals and over 60 assists between them. Although they need to improve their offensive structure, they look good for the the upcoming game.
While defending, the team has conceded over three goals per game this season and needs to improve a lot. The overall contribution from the goaltenders has been inconsistent, which needs to be addressed soon.
Meanwhile, the Ducks have one of the worst offenses in the league as only the likes of Trever Zagreb and Adam Henrique have contributed enough for them. They have lacked enough options up front. Their defense has conceded more than four goals per game this season, which is very poor.
Penguins vs Ducks NHL Betting Prediction
This game is going to be very interesting as both teams are on the back of a win. The Penguins with a stronger offense and equally decent defense will fancy their chances. The Ducks have a poor defensive structure, which puts them in the difficult situation. Though, having played better in their last four games, they are not complete underdogs in this game and we can expect it to be tightly contested.
Nevertheless, we can expect Penguins to find enough to cover the spread in this one.
