By the end of the regular season, Gerrard Gallant's team made great progress on defense. The Rangers' recent wins, both away, over Tampa Bay and Carolina proved it once again - 2:1 and 2:0. The Rangers and goalie Igor Shesterkin had a hard time scoring.
The Rangers lost their concentration in the last game, falling to New Jersey 4:7 on the road. After back-to-back victories over Tampa Bay and Carolina, that wasn't surprising at all.
As the current season shows, it's too early to neglect Pittsburgh. Crosby, Malkin and Letang are eager to finish their careers with a fourth Stanley Cup. And it does look realistic. The Penguins are going good and stable this season. They approach the meeting in the third place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Pittsburgh lost their last game on the road. Mike Sullivan's team lost to Buffalo 3:4 in a shootout. Now the Penguins have four straight games against the Sabres where they fail to beat the Blades in regulation time. Apparently, this is the most uncomfortable opponent for the Penguins in recent years.
