Pittsburgh Penguins (28-9-0) @ New York Rangers (17-15-3)
NBCSN - 7:30 pm/et
Madison Square Garden - New York City, NY
The first of a home-and-home between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Blue Jackets. The Pens look to start a new streak tonight while New York is fighting for its playoff life.
Mark Eaton is sick and won't play. Also, the Pens traded Patrick Killeen for future considerations presented by Walgreens.
Season Series: Pens lead 3-0-0
Last meeting that counted: March 16, 2013. Penguins won 3-0.
What we said in our recap:
If Dan Bylsma started a meth lab in the bottom of Consol, the Pens wouldn't have half the problems the Rangers do.
In the past, the Rangers were tough to play against. They are laughable now. The Pens shut them down with ease on Saturday afternoon.
Marc-Andre Fleury was solid, and the Pens defense was as good as it has been all season.

The moves clear over $2 million in cap space and ensure that both Miller and Kreider...
… Ryane Clowe said he always wanted to wear this hat after seeing it on 24/7. Well Ryane, in only your first game as a New York Ranger your wish has come true! Amazing game from Clowe last night.
The NHL trade deadline has come and gone. While a number of transactions transpired in the days leading up to it, some thought it might be a quiet day. However there were still a flurry of trades as the official cut-off passed.
The Stanley Cup futures are going to change as some teams improved their rosters while some downgraded. Here’s a look at the winners and losers of trade...
On Wednesday night the Pittsburgh Penguins struggled mightily during their game against the New York Rangers. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was clearly frustrated with the lack of help he was getting and when he went to slam his stick against the boards, the stick actually got caught between the boards and the glass. This obviously made him even more upset because he had...
HARTFORD, April 3, 2013: Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has signed defenseman Conor Allen to an Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement.
Allen, who agreed to terms on an NHL free agent contract with the parent New York Rangers last Friday, recently completed his third season of Hockey East play at U. Mass-Amherst. The 6-2, 210-pound...
The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded goaltender Patrick Killeen to the Columbus Blue Jackets for future considerations. Killeen was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 6th round (180th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to turning professional, Killeen played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League with the Brampton Battalion. Last year, Killeen appeared...
As the games get more and more important down the stretch, John Tortorella will also be looking to shorten the bench. Which was never more evident than with J.T. Miller (7:08) and Chris Kreider's (3:23) ice time during the Rangers 4-2 win last night.
Tortorella addressed that concern after the game...
"Quite honestly, I'm worried about the two kids. Not that...

Gaborik has agreed to waive his no-trade clause to complete the deal.
Brassard, 25, has seven goals and 11 assists...

Pens fall 6-1 to the Rangers on Wednesday
Sorry for the quick post. I've got to head back to PNC Park this morning to close out the Pirates homestand. Since I missed Wednesday's tilt, I'd like to ask you, the readers, what went wrong.
Feel free to list the top three reasons why the Penguins lost at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.
As has always been the case at The New York Rangers Blog, we will have extensive coverage of all the trade deadline happenings tomorrow. But this year, we'll have a triple threat.
First, as I've done since the blog was created in 2007, I'll be doing a trade tracker throughout the day. Basically I'll be posting every trade and rumor out there as well as any Rangers...
The trade deadline is today at 3pm, and the Rangers have already been active. They’ve acquired Ryane Clowe for draft picks, and are rumored to be in on Ryan O’Byrne, a right handed defenseman form Colorado. Jamie McBain was a name rumored to be available, but with Joni Pitkanen getting hurt, it’s unlikely the Canes move him.
Use this as your open thread to discuss the deadline...
