Day Off

The Rangers get a rest today, as also do the Penguins as they prepare for tomorrow’s Game 5 in Pittsburgh (2:00pm – Eastern). The Rangers wouldn’t be the same next year without Jaromir Jagr according to Bergen Record writer Tom Gulitti. Gulitti is one of a growing number of writers who’ve been jumping on the Jagr bandwagon.

If the Rangers are to win the series, they’ll need to neutralize Sidney Crosby. While Evgeni Malkin lead the Penguins in the regular season, Crosby is probably their key player, and the Rangers will need to keep a lid […]
