It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh!
Tonight, live from the Madison Square Garden in the city that never sleeps, it's the New York Rangers against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Hello everyone, welcome to LetsGoPens, I'm your game thread starter and game thread manager EagleMorph. The Penguins and Rangers unquestionably have a long history, and the Rangers are doing all they can to flush the bad memories of their playoff loss to the birds from Pittsburgh last year. New York, like the Penguins, started the season overseas. But the Rangers fared better against Tampa than the Pens did against Ottawa, and they've been red hot since their return home.
This is the Pens chance to gain some ground in the Atlantic Division, as New York sits in first place, four points ahead of the Pens.
