Tommy VokounPittsburgh Penguins vs. Boston Bruins Game 3 Free NHL Pick: The Pittsburgh Penguins know that they are going to be in a heck of a lot of trouble right now. They lost their first two games at home against the Boston Bruins at Consol Energy Arena, and now, they have to head to the TD Garden, where the hosts are going to try to essentially put this series away. Boston is a -115 favorite on the NHL odds for Game 3, which takes place on Wednesday night.

Penguins vs. Bruins Game Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
Penguins vs. Bruins Live TV Coverage: NBC Sports Network
NHL Odds: Penguins +108 / Bruins -115 (Total: 5.5)

One of the two teams in this series features four players with at least a +10 here in the playoffs. That same team has one player with 17 points and one with 20 points. The other team has seven players with at least 10 points, but no one who has more than 16 points. Do you know which one is Boston and which one is Pittsburgh? You’d probably think that the Penguins have the stars with the greater amount of points, but instead, the stars of this series have been C David Krejci and RW Nathan Horton, not C Sidney Crosby and C Evgeni Malkin. We have believed that Boston has been the better team in this series every step of the way, and until the Penguins can figure out their goaltending situation, none of that is going to change. We don’t think that G Tomas Vokoun is the answer to winning this series, and we don’t think that G Marc-Andre Fleury has any clue how to stop a puck at this point either. The Bruins should be at least -170 favorites in this game as we see it.
