Opponent Notes:
- Sidney Crosby hasn’t scored a goal in his past 12 playoff games.

- Evgeni Makin has scored in just one of the Penguins seven playoff games.

- After combining for 16 points in the first round (2g, 14a), both Paul Martin and Matt Niskanen were held scoreless in Game 1.

- Chris Kunitz was pointless with a -3 in Game 1.

- Brooks Orpik skated yesterday for the first time since sustaining a lower body injury in Game 4 vs. Columbus, but did not practice with the team this morning and is doubtful for Game 2.

- The Penguins have the ninth best power play in the playoffs (18.2%) after leading the NHL with a 23.4% during the regular season.

- This is one of my all time favorite Rangers goals against the Penguins…
