The first game of a home-and-home against the Rangers.
The Pens are in MSG on Monday.

“Kris Letang and Alex Goligoski are expected to return to the lineup tonight against the NY Rangers. And while Jay McKee will not play tonight, he said that he is hopeful to return in the team’s Monday contest in New York.”

The last time the Rangers were in the Igloo the Pens were hanging a banner, so it’s fitting that the team is starting to resemble the Stanley Cup Champs once again.
Deryk Engelland and Ben Lovejoy have been returned to WBS.
They did a solid job while they were with the big club and it’s comforting to know that they’re there if needed.
The Rangers played in Tampa yesterday and lost 5-1.
Wade Redden and Brandon Dubinsky are out of the line-up for the Rags.

Marian Gaborik leads the league with 19 goals and is second in the league in points with 36.
He’s also managed to remain relatively injury-free, missing only two games this season so far.
He had a four point game against the Blue Jackets on Monday but was shut down by the Lightning yesterday.
Hendrik Lundqvist played last night in Tampa, and the Rangers haven’t announced if he will start again tonight.
One would have to assume that he will.
Of course, when the Rangers are involved, the easy thing to do in this situation is to post some Sean Avery Photoshops we’ve received in the past.
And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
While looking for Penguins/Rangers clips on YouTube we found this:
Absolutely unreal.
The Pens won that game 10-4.
At the 1:02 mark of that video:
That pretty much defines “Stunned.”

Gizmo fist pump at the 35 second mark of this video.

Do it.

Go Pens.
