New York Rangers at Pittsburgh Penguins 7:00 PM – NBCSN, ROOT, CBC, TVA, MSG CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

There’s some construction going on in the Civic Arena parking lot, and citing safety concerns, the Pens have announced that the big screen won’t be up for the first round of the playoffs. The good news? It sounds like it will be up in the second round if the Pens can get there. Also, Pittsburgh […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins reward for making the NHL’s second season is a dance with the President Trophy winning New York Rangers.
