The complexion of this second-round series between the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins could change drastically – and more than once – in the next two days.
The Rangers carry a 1-0 series lead into Pittsburgh for Game 2, which can be viewed on NBCSN or via the livestream link below:
One might assume that New York is “playing with house money,” yet the Rangers have plenty of motivation to grab another win on Sunday. The two teams switch over to Madison Square Garden for Game 3 on Monday, so neither squad will get much rest. Considering the fact that the Rangers were in a Game 7 on Wednesday, it’s reasonable to assume that they might be the more tired team tomorrow.
There’s a lot on the line tonight, and not just for Sidney Crosby, who cannot seem to avoid criticisms … at least until he starts scoring goals.
