The Pittsburgh Penguins won their first round series, but they gave up a number of leads along the way and suffered some defensively lapses. Lately, there hasn’t been much to dislike about Pittsburgh’s performance.

They’re coming off back-to-back shutout wins and hold a 2-1 series lead over the New York Rangers. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma felt Game 2 on Sunday “may have been our most complete game in a lot of areas,” according to

Monday’s contest was a step back in some regards because of the amount of time Pittsburgh spent in its own end, but the Penguins still won cleanly on the strength of goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury‘s 35-save performance.

At the same time, the Penguins’ recent success might have been aided by the New York Rangers’ situation. Game 3 completed a stretch where the Rangers were forced to play in five contests over seven days. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault let his frustration show by blasting the schedule as “stupid.”

The Rangers got a much needed breather on Tuesday and they will resume their quest to snap their scoring slump tonight. A loss wouldn’t be fatal for them, but it would be a devastating setback.

The game will start at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and can also be streamed online:

    Lucky to get the puck but a sick 360 backhand by Malkin.

    C’mon Rangers!!! When everyone hits you have a chance. Just like that shift late in the period. Just ask Columbus…
