The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday at PPG Paints Arena. Captain Sidney Crosby netted twice for the win. Also, Center Greg McKegg did an impressive job both as a third-line center and as a member of the Penguins’ penalty scoring unit. McKegg scored his first goal as a Penguin on Saturday.
Goalie Matt Murray is doing an incredible job thus far in the season he made 43 saves in the game against the Panthers.
Tuesday contest in New York against the Rangers could see defenseman Ian Cole back in the lineup. Cole missed the last three games with an injury but was a full participant in Monday’s practice.
The Rangers were in great shape in the opening period of their last match against the New Jersey Devils but couldn’t hold their ground in the season for a 3-2 loss on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers entering Tuesday’s clash against the defending champions Pens are 1-5 on the young season. A win here could possibly give them a much necessary boost to get back on track.
The team will be focused on not committing turnovers on Tuesday as they committed 16 against the Devils.
Ondrej Pavelec made 16 saves making his first start as a Ranger in Saturday’s loss and is expected to start again on Tuesday.
