Why do you even follow this team? Go away.

After losing the first two games in embarrassing fashion, the Rangers are 3-1 in their last 4.The 1 came on the second leg of a back-to-back.

They are starting to come together. Losing Callahan is rough. But they can rally behind that and use the adversity to get stronger as a team.

Penguins are 1-3 in their last 4. The 1 came in a shootout. The loses were really bad. Including a 4-1 loss to the Islanders and a 5-2 loss to the Leafs.

The Rangers can win this game.

Why are people acting like the Penguins are some unbeatable team and that this is an uphill battle? We have the same record and they lost to Toronto, Winnipeg and the Islanders...

Have you been watching them at all this season or are you just assuming that since they're the islanders they should be penciled in as the worst team of the league... They look legit this year, with a shortened season there is a lot less time for them to tank at the end. Wouldn't be surprised if they snuck into the playoffs if Nabokov keeps this up and isn't traded.

Being a realist. This team has looked really bad against the Penguins post-lockout. Crosby/Malkin both have better stats against the Rangers than other teams. They simply match up too well against us, similarly to how we match up well to the Flyers.

They must make most of having Fleury as the opposite goaltender. Which is to shoot... a lot. It'll get in, Nash, it'll get in.

This team is 23-20-5 against the Pens in the reg season since the lockout (doesn't include current season). I certainly wouldn't call that 'really bad', especially as the Pens have been one of the best in the East for most of those years

The games against the Pens have always been tight. The Rangers have played well against them, save a few games here and there.

in 09/10 we went 1-4-1 against them (and then reversed it the next season). Last year we were 2-4.

I really hope they don't make the playoffs

They have a good goalie in Nabokov.

If you want to be so miserable about it before the game's even played, why bother watching at all?

Better yet.. you should pledge to eat your pubes if we win

It's going to be tough, very tough tonight. Remember, the Pens got embarrassed by the Isles on Tuesday.

The pressure falls almost entirely on our top line's magic or... alternative, on a stellar night from Henrik.

Predicting a 1-4 loss here. The guys are certainly shocked by that potentially career ending injury of The Captain. Just can't cope with it.

This game could go either way, really. Hoping for the best. They can't come out chasing early. If they do, we're in for a bad night like last time.
