The Rangers are in Pittsburgh for the final tilt of the regular season with a series advantage of 2-0-1. After today, the only way these two teams can see each other again would be in the playoffs.

The Pens are coming off a loss to the Islanders and will be looking to get back in the win column. Meanwhile the Blueshirts gutted out a tough 2-1 win in Columbus and hope to build on it.
