Rangers Fall to Penguins in Game 3 – Doug’s Sports Rap
Pittsburgh is an improved team this season and have taken a 2 to 1 lead in the series with a 3-1 win against the Rangers.
Despite the Penguins stingy defense which help the Rangers to only 13 shots through two periods and 17 shots in total. The Blue Shirts took the lead with the first goal of the night by Rick Nash in the first minute of the second period, but couldn't get the puck past 21 year old Matt Murray a goaltender playing in his first NHL playoff game.
Can the Blue Shirts knock off the Penguins for the third straight year?
Many fans think this series will go to a game seven, but right now if you're a Ranger fan you have to be thinking about a win in game four tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers have some key injuries defenseman Dan Girardi is out for the New York Rangers, captain Ryan McDonagh is back, but is he at full strength?
The return of Penguins Goaltender Matt Murray will only strengthen this Pittsburgh defense.
The Rangers will need a big game from their leading scorers.
Game 4 is tomorrow night in New York.
