The Pens face the Rangers tonight, with matching 3-3 records. Pittsburgh lost an awful – so bad that Crosby’s jeans couldn’t fix it – game to the Islanders on Tuesday. New York squeaked out a 2-1 win over Philly that cost them captain Ryan Callahan, who hurt his shoulder grappling with none other than Max Talbot. Luckily for the NYR, Cally will only miss 10-14 days [link].
Pittsburgh has lost 3 of their last 4 games, while New York has won 3 of 4. Their first meeting of the season ended in a 6-3 Penguins win that bounced Lundqvist in the second period.
James Neal scored two in that game vs. NYR… and only one goal since. Maybe since it was tight t-shirt time, he’ll get back on the board tonight.
