Free NHL Pick For April 4: Penguins vs. Bruins
Pittsburgh Penguins (1.85) vs. Bosoton Bruins (2.03); Total 6
7:35 PM ET starting time for this game.
We have to start with the goalies getting the start in this game. In goal we will see Brent Johnson vs. Marty Turco. The fact that Turco is getting the start is newsworthy on its own. On the year Turco has made 4 appearances and has posted a 3.28 GAA and a .867 save %. It is quite evident that Turco is not on top of his game. Since returning from injury Brent Johnson has looked shaky at times and solid at others. It doesn’t matter who is in goal for the Pens these days they are just having a tough time keeping the puck out of their net. When you think of Boston you think of great defence but over there last 30 games they are allowing an average of 3.27 goals per game (worst in the NHL). Now they have to face a potent Pens offence with Marty Turco in goal. The Bruins are going to have to put up a big number in this game to win it (which they are capable of doing).

Penguins vs Bruins Prediction:
A few posts ago we talked about how Penguins games continued to go OVER the total and that has still not changed. The last 8 (and 11 of the last 12) Penguins games have now gone OVER the total. Finally we are starting to see the odds adjust as the total for this game is currently 6 goals (favored to the Over). Even with a total of 6 it is still not enough to stop me from taking the OVER in this game. The Penguins may very well score 5 themselves in this game and that might not even be enough to win the game. I see a boatload of goals in this game tonight and a total of 6 is not going to scare me away. I’ll take the Penguins vs. Bruins game to go OVER 6 goals for 1.85 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook.
