Just when you thought the New York Rangers were losing their pulse, Keith Yandle and Derick Brassard performed some much needed CPR.

Just when you thought the New York Rangers were dead, Keith Yandle, Derick Brassard, and Mats Zuccarello all netted goals to put the good guys up 3-1.

Shots haven’t been a problem for the Rangers this afternoon, but penetrating the slot has been.

But that all changed after a scrum in the crease turned into a Yandle goal.

The NHL vet showed some serious patience, as had to corral the puck and find the net under some pressure.

Less than a minute later, Derick Brassard found some open ice and picked a top shelf corner to put the Blueshirts up 2-1.

The play was reviewed for a possible missed offside call, but to no avail.

Mats Zuccarello added some insurance to the Rangers lead when the Penguins forgot to cover the weak post.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: Chris.Wengert@elitesportsny.com
