The New York Rangers will look to end their two game skid this afternoon as they head into Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins. The Penguins have won seven games straight, and have no plans of stopping anytime soon. All of the remaining games are big for the Rangers, but this one is just a little more important than the rest. Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start, and Roman Hamrlik will remain in the lineup.

Player To Watch:

Rick Nash hasn't been on the score sheet that much over the last few games, and this is the type of game where he will thrive. As Joe pointed out in the preview, I wouldn't be surprised if he and Marian Gaborik have a big game. They're sort of due.
