New York Rangers (11-7-1, 23 pts) at Pittsburgh Penguins (8-10-1, 17 pts)
I wasn't going to use Fleury and Lundqvist, but they were consecutive cards in a pack of Upper Deck Artifacts. I figured that was good enough.
The Rangers come to town having won three straight games on the road, four straight overall and 8 of their past 9. They've made quite a turn-around from their slow start.
The Pens are hoping that their win over the Islanders on Thursday is the spark to fuel their own revival. They were slumping badly before winning at home against the Isles. Now they'll try to finish off the other team from New York.
As usual, the Pens need to avoid the shootout against Lundqvist. He's stopped 8 of 9 shots in the shootout so far this season.
A stat I didn't realize was that the Rangers have lost three straight here, and five of the past six. Here's hoping that streak will continue.
