Rangers Vs. Penguins Game 5 Preview: Bring This One Back Home

Bruce Bennett

The New York Rangers will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in hopes on extending their season for at least another day.

The New York Rangers will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in hopes of salvaging their season for at least another day. Alain Vigneault elected to make some much needed lineup changes, which will hopefully spark the team in a must-win game 5. However, Martin St. Louis' status for tonight is still questionable as he is back in Montreal with the passing of his mother last night.

Family comes first when tragedy strikes, and it will be no surprise if St. Louis sits out tonight's game under the current circumstances. The Rangers will rally around St. Louis whether he is playing or not tonight, and as Joe mentioned this morning, we'll all be right here supporting him when he gets back.

All information regarding tonight's game can be found in the table below.
