Pittsburgh Penguins (11-4-0) @ New York Rangers (6-8-0) NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2 - 7:30 pm/et  Madison Square Garden - New York City, NY The Metropolitan Division is basically a pile of garbage with a stupid name right now. The Pens, however, have won four games in a row.  MSG is all renovated now and such. One day someone is going to fall off of those new "sky bridges" that they built and it's going to be bad. Or maybe not. We know pretty much nothing about them. STATS, INFO & NOTES: Leading Scorers: Penguins: Sidney Crosby (8G, 15A: 23P) Rangers: Brad Richards (5G, 5A: 10P) Starting Goaltenders: Penguins: Marc-Andre Fleury (10-2-0, 1.83 GAA, .929 Sv% ) Rangers: Henrik Lundqvist (4-6-0, 2.56 GAA, .914 Sv%) Last Games: Penguins: Defeated Columbus Blue Jackets 3-0. Rangers: Lost to Anaheim Ducks 2-1. Previews from Team Websites:  [Penguins] [Rangers]  Line Combinations and Notes: [Start Spreading the News] Opposition Blog: [The New York Rangers Blog] What They're Saying: "New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins. The Smell of Revenge is in the Air" The Penguins have defeated the Rangers nine out of their last 10 trips to MSG. What Happened Last Time: April 5, 2013 - Pens won 2-1 (SO) [Our Recap] The Pens and Rangers have played a carbon copy of this game late in the season for what seems like forever now. The game is tight-checking, hard-hitting, and there is bad blood all over the place. Friday night fit the bill After two mild periods, the third period turned into a little bit of everything. While Henrik and MAF dueled, Douglas Murray killed Brian Boyle, Matt Cooke went after the Rangers bench, and Rick Nash actually did something that mattered. Just a great game. In the end, Fleury was outrageously good and basically won the game by himself. Penguins Player(s) to Watch: Evgeni Malkin, because we're waiting for a big night from him. Rangers Player(s) to Watch: Henrik Lundqvist has not looked very "Henrik Lundqvistish" in the Rangers so far this year. Will that change tonight?
