Opponent Notes:
- The Penguins have won four straight and nine of 10.

- Pittsburgh's top four defensemen Kris Letang, Brooks Orpik, Paul Martin and Rob Scuderi are out with injuries, while Deryk Engelland will miss the game due to a suspension.

- Also out with injuries are forwards Evgeni Malkin, Beau Bennett, Tanner Glass and Andrew Ebbett, as is the suspended James Neal.

- Sidney Crosby has six goals and five assists during an 11-game point streak. Crosby has gone 11 straight games without scoring a goal against the Rangers.

- Rookie defenseman Philip Samuelsson – son of Rangers assistant Ulf – will play his second NHL game.

- Chris Kunitz has 17 points (9g, 8a) in his last 16 games.

- Apparently, without a number of their skill players, the Penguins have been winning by playing tough, hard working hockey which includes hits like this from Robert Bortuzzo…
