Henrik Lundqvist – 5-4, 2.07 gaa, .926 sv%, 0 so

Marc-Andre Fleury – 5-3, 2.49 gaa, .914 sv%, 1 so

Opponent Notes:
– Sidney Crosby hasn’t scored a goal in his past 13 playoff games.

– Evgeni Malkin has seven goals and six assists in his last 10 at MSG.

– Marc Andre Fleury has a 4.54 goals-against average in his last three road starts against the Rangers

– Kris Letang’s Game 2 goal was his 15th career postseason tally, tying Larry Murphy’s franchise record for a defenseman.

– Jussi Jokinen has a point in seven of the Penguins eight playoff games (4g, 3a).

– The Penguins are 1-for-7 on the power play this series and have killed off all eight of the Rangers power plays against.

– Brooks Orpik is expected to miss his fifth straight game tonight.

– Easily my favorite Jaromir Jagr goal as a Ranger. Maybe Rick Nash should take notice…
