48 hours after winning Game 1, the Rangers will look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of the Metropolitan Division Semi-Finals on Saturday night.
Neither team has made any personnel changes from Game 1, meaning that the lineups should start like this tonight:
As expected, Henrik Lundqvist will face off against Marc-Andre Fleury in net.
Since Game 1 ended, Alain Vigneault has turned the Penguins’ physical play, especially around Lundqvist and his crease, into a talking point, a sentiment the Penguins unsurprisingly don’t agree with. Expect this to remain a narrative/story line not only tonight, but for the rest of the series.
Game time is 8 PM eastern on NBC.
