Game 9-Pens @ Rangers

Game 9-Pens @ Rangers (FSN/WXDX) 7:00 pm

The Pittsburgh Penguins will face the Jagr-less New York Ranger at Madison Sqare Garden.

The Rangers had an impressive start to the season going 5-0, proving to all the so-called experts that just because they opened the season in Europe doesn't mean they have to suck balls the entire season.

They did drop 2 in a row before regaining their winning form by beating Columbus 3-1.
Zherdev had a big night with a goal and 2 assists.

Lungqvist had 25 saves

But the biggest news coming out of that game was Rangers coach Tom Renney getting knocked out by the stick of Columbus Defensemen Dan Klesla. Renney was helped to the locker room by the assisted coaches, he did not return to the bench.

The Pittburgh Penguins are starting to heat up, winning 3 in a row, with a 3rd period rampage against the Hurricanes, scoring 3 goals in 3 minutes before ending the game with a Malkin empty netter.

The [TRIB] is reporting that Hal Gill will not be playing, althought HCMT thinks he will return to line up at some point on this road trip.

Matt Cooke is expected to play today aftere missing the previous 4 games with bruised ribs or something.
