The last away series they played with varying success, but do not forget that they had serious opponents, such as Boston Bruins and New York Islanders. Penguins could easily earn 4 points on the road, but missed the victory in the match with the “bears”. They had an advantage of one goal, which they could not keep. Then they went to visit the “islanders”, where they obtained victory with a score of (4-3) in the overtime. They demonstrated incredible willpower, having scored three goals in the third period.
Two key players could not help their team this time due to injuries: Patrick Hornqvist (forward) and Kris Letang (defender).

In the standings of the Western Conference, they are placed on line 12, with 13 points. Recently, they were able to improve results slightly. In the last three battles, they suffered only one defeat – Blackhawks lost to San Jose Sharks away with a score (2-4). After this, they defeated the Vancouver Canucks at home (5-2). It is worth noting that the squad of Jeremy Colliton won because they were acting excellently on the powerplay.

No matter how strange it sounds, the Chicago Blackhawks Club is kryptonite for the Pittsburgh Penguins team. Over the past six full-time confrontations, Mike Sullivan’s team have been unable to beat the Black Hawks since 2017. However, there is one tendency; almost every contest between them has a lot of scoring.
