Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel have done their part to make up for their slow start to the season that gave many the impression the Penguins were suffering from the proverbial championship hangover. But with a win Wednesday, the Penguins would pull ahead of the idle Capitals for first place in the Metropolitan Division, a title that’s changed hands between the two teams and Philadelphia this season.
The Rangers (31-32-7) begin Wednesday in last place in the Metropolitan and well into the playing-for-pride portion of the season after beginning a rebuilding project at the trade deadline, when New York dealt away several players, including captain Ryan McDonagh and longtime star Rick Nash.
The Rangers briefly moved back on to the cusp of wild-card contention by winning their first three games following the deadline, though the three-game losing streak that ended Sunday likely extinguished any flickering playoff hopes. Still, playing above-.500 hockey with a rebuilt roster is a source of satisfaction for New York players.
“I think just in general the mood is always better when you win,” Rangers left winger Jimmy Vesey said after recording his first NHL hat trick Sunday. “No one is going to take it easy on us just because we have a young lineup or anything like that. We can’t feel bad for ourselves. We have to go out and play with passion and pride every night. I think we’ve done a good job of that lately.”
The Penguins’ Tristan Jarry is likely to oppose the Rangers’ Henrik Lundqvist in a battle of No. 1 goalies. Jarry took the defeat in his most recent appearance Saturday, when he made 12 saves before being pulled after the second period of a 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is 3-2-0 this month in place of Matt Murray, who is sidelined with a concussion but expected to travel with the team to New York.
