Opponent Notes:
- Sidney Crosby broke a 13 game playoff scoreless streak in Game 3.

- Marc Andre Fleury has stopped all 57 shots against the last two games.

– Evgeni Malkin has three points (1g, 2a) in the three games this series.

– Paul Martin has been held pointless in this series after tallying eight points, all assists, in the first round against Columbus.

– Jussi Jokinen has a point in eight of the Penguins nine playoff games (5g, 3a).

– The Penguins are 1-for-8 on the power play this series and have killed off all 13 of the Rangers power plays against.

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

– Got to love the Penguin beat writers classifying Marc Staal as a dirty player, meanwhile, nothing on Evgeni “Slewfoot” Malkin…
