Note: I’m on vacation through 11/22, and all of the game threads were written before I left. Lineups are impossible to predict this far in advance, so I’m leaving those out. I’ll do the best I can with the summaries and the crazy predictions.
The Rangers finish up their mini home stand tonight against the Penguins. This is likely another playoff season for the Penguins, but they are more vulnerable as Matt Murray is showing to be less and less of a starting goalie at the NHL level. The Penguins are still dangerous though, even without Sidney Crosby who will miss the game with a lower body injury.
Crazy Prediction: Evgeni Malkin slew foots a Ranger and actually gets penalized.
Use this as your game thread for tonight. Game time is 7:30pm on NBCSN.
