Opponent Notes:
– The Penguins have won 16 of their last 17 games at home.

– Pittsburgh has won 10 of their last 12 against the Rangers, including five straight at home.

– Kris Letang will be out for at least six weeks because of a stroke he suffered last week.

– Sidney Crosby has scored 16 goals in 40 games against Lundqvist – his highest total against any goalie.

– Evgeni Malkin has 3g, 3a in the last four games.

– Chris Kunitz is pointless in his last three games.

– James Neal has four points (2g, 2a) in the last four games.

– Taylor Pyatt, who has two goals since being claimed by the Penguins from the Rangers, will miss tonight's game with a lower body injury.

– Since tough guy Deryk Engelland returned from a five-game suspension in late December, the Penguins are 13-1-1 when he's in the lineup, 0-2 when he's a healthy scratch.

– Easily one of my favorite Rangers/Penguins moments is when Lundqvist gets in Crosby's face after another one of his patented dives…
