With playoff implications on the line, the Pittsburgh Penguins travel to New York to take on the mighty Rangers in a Metropolitan Divisional showdown.
The Penguins are in the middle of a muddled Eastern Conference playoff race and now have to play the New York Rangers after playing the Detroit Red Wings the day before.
Pittsburgh has been without Evgeni Malkin for the last two weeks, but that hasn’t stopped its offense much.
With the exception of an ugly 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Thursday night, the Pens’ offense has been on a tear.
With their winning streak no longer intact, the Penguins will look to bounce back in Madison Square Garden, the building they won in just two weeks ago.
But this matchup will be the second of a back-to-back for the Pens, a situation that has not been favorable to them this year.
But with the regular season in its final stages, Pittsburgh will give everything it’s got to these two huge points on Sunday.
New York Rangers
The Rangers have been fortunate to avoid most of the crowd in the East despite hovering around the same point mark as the rest.
New York seems to win at the right time while the others falter, and it’s hard to see the Blue Shirts not hosting a playoff game once they begin.
The Rangers have been one of the most efficient home teams in the NHL with a 25-8-3 record inside Madison Square Garden. Luckily for them, five of their last seven games are at home, including this one against the Penguins.
After losing to Pittsburgh at home on March 13, the Rangers have responded nicely inside their home building.
Led by Mats Zuccarello and Derick Brasard, New York has won its last two home games over quality opponents, defeating the Panthers and Bruins by a combined score of 9-4.
