Don't look now. The Penguins might be on to something. A couple weeks ago the sky was falling. Everyone was getting fired. Everyone was getting traded. Now the Penguins enter tonight's game at 21-12-6, and 3 points behind the terrorists from Washington for 1st place in the Metro. The Rangers 17-14-7 are trending the other direction having lost 6 of their last 9 games. So expect the Penguins to lose by 4 tonight.
The Rangers are led by known terrorist and goalie runner Chris Kreider who happens to also lead the team in goals with 20. They also still have giant piss-baby Henrik Lundqvist who, when he isn't flipping nets can still stand on his head and steal a game for the Rags. For some reason, this is first time the Penguins and Rangers have met this season so they haven't had time to piss us off yet. We're sure that will change once Lundqvist starts throwing another temper tantrum.
Both of these teams are coming off of wins in their last game. The Rangers beat St. Louis 2-1 and the Penguins beat the Wild by a score of 3-2.
Matt Murray is expected to start in goal for the Penguins.
Sidney Crosby might be good. He has 7 points in his last 3 games.
Phil Kessel might also be good. He has 8 points in his last 3 games.
Since returning from whatever injury or cocaine addiction he had, Matt Murray has been very good posting a 5-0 record with a 1.38 GAA and a .959 save percentage.
Speaking of injury, Bryan Rust is expected to play tonight after avoiding a potentially serious injury against the Blues the other night.
The Penguins have scored on 7 of their last 8 power play opportunities.
Marc Staal sucks.
The Rangers have Cody McLeod hahahaha.
Chris Kreider will probably try to run Matt Murray at some point tonight.
Murray vs Lundqvist tonight
Speaking of Lundqvist tbt to when he flipped the net.
Lundqvist has a seven game losing streak against the Pens. Actually, he hasn't beat them since he flipped the net back on March 2nd, 2016.
