Crosby and Marino are taking warmups so they’re presumably in. #Pens— Matt Vensel (@mattvensel) April 9, 2022
Crosby was forced to miss the game Thursday due to a non-COVID-19 related illness. Crosby has had a good season for the Penguins with 26 goals, 46 assists, and a rating of plus-13 in 59 games. Crosby has also been a force on the power play with eight goals and 20 assists.
The Penguins have all but clinched a playoff berth as they sit third in the Metropolitan Division. They are six points behind the second-place New York Rangers and six points ahead of the eighth-place Washington Capitals. The Penguins seem to be on a collision course with the Rangers as these two look like they will face each other in the first round of the playoffs.
The Penguins are currently trailing the Capitals 2-1 late in the first period. The Penguins are -250 (+1.5) on the puck line, +118 on the money line, with an over/under of 8.5, over (-113), and under (-113). You can find the bars and props for this game and all others at the FanDuel Sportsbook.
