- Pittsburgh is 2-1-2 against the Rangers this season. The Penguins won both previous meetings in Pittsburgh with a 3-0 shutout and 6-2 decision. The teams finished the season series in New York with the Penguins going 0-1-2 at Madison Square Garden.
- The Rangers have seven games remaining in the ‘08-09 season, all of which are against playoff teams: Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Carolina, Boston, Montreal and Philadelphia (twice).
- With seven games remaining, the Rangers almost surely will use Henrik Lundqvist the rest of the way, and he must first end his woes in Pittsburgh. He has one win in his last eight visits there, and is 3-7-2 with a 2.81 goals-against average in his career at Pittsburgh.
No other way to put it, the Rangers need a win today.
