A couple things to think about.
1. Don’t overanalyze this ****. Every NHL team gets run out of the building like this every now and then. This is really the first time the Pens have been tea-bagged this season, so it’s the exception to the rule.
2. It’s a good thing. The Pens need to be tested in their division. The Rangers are most likely the team that can do it. They’ve needed a good handful of games to get used to Alain Vigneault and finally play some home games. They’ve now won 4 of their last 6.
3. And speaking of Vigneault, if we were the Rangers GM and interviewing him for the job, one of our key questions for him would’ve been about how he plans to beat the Penguins. He’s been around the block, so we’re pretty sure he has a couple plans up his sleeve.
4. And how about this stat. The Rangers (91-0-6) have registered at least 1 point in the last 97 regular-season games in which they've had the lead going into the third period. Holy ****.
Pens are in St. Lou...
