The Pittsburgh Penguins hope to go 5-0 in playoff series in their franchise history against the New York Rangers by closing them out in Pittsburgh in Game 5 on Friday.

From the tone of many observers, it seems like the Rangers’ season is already over. Star players have been criticized (especially but not only Rick Nash), while Martin St. Louis is playing tonight despite his mother’s passing on Thursday.

It all shapes up to be a game that might be a little bit difficult to figure; the Rangers could very well prolong this series and make things interesting, go down fighting or go out with a whimper. We’ll find out soon enough as Game 5 kicks off on NBCSN and can also be viewed via the link below.

    If the Penguins close this out tonight, which I believe they will, they could potentially have 7-10 days off. Boston/ Montreal game 7 would be May 14th and LA/ Anaheim would be May 16th. I don’t particularly like that but we don’t complain about schedules here.

    It’s a power play goal!!!!!!!!

    MAF is not sharp at all. On the first goal he fails to direct the rebound into the corner. Result is a goallllllll! Boyle dings one off the iron because MAF is leaning too much to his right. Second goal was the result of a defensive breakdown, but MAF gave up another rebound.
