God I hate these 12:30 games. They suck. The Rangers suck. New York sucks. You suck if you're reading this. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
The Penguins play host the the Rangers for Sunday's 12:30 NBC game. The Penguins (30-21-7) are coming off a 5-4 loss to the Flames. The Rangers are currently at 25-24-8 outside of a playoff spot while the rebuild continues for them. They still have mushed brained Marc Staal so there is that. Honestly F the Rangers. And "King Henrik" who still has nightmares of the Penguins. Johan Hedberg was better. Gimme the Moose over the "King" any day.
Also, the Penguins finally got goals from Mr. Malkin who will likely be murdered in Philly on Saturday thanks to him trying out for the Pirates by swinging his stick at the Flyers last time they played.
I would honestly love to see the Penguins trade Matt Cullen to the moon for some dust but hey even the moon knows thats not a fair trade.
Third jerseys again.
The Penguins beat the Rangers in their previous meeting back on January 2nd by a score of 7-2.
Henrik Lundqvist will sit today because the Penguins still have him shook.
Speaking of which, he has not beaten the Penguins since he flipped the net back on March 2nd of 2016.
Matt Cullen sucks.
Simon sucks too.
You know who doesn't suck? Phil Kessel. He recorded his 800th career point in the loss to the Flames, becoming the 17th American born player to do so.
Marcus Pettersson killed a man yesterday.
The Rangers are 5-4-1 over their last ten so pretty much anything can happen today.
