The New York Rangers defeaated the Pittsburgh Penguins and will have a well-deserved home ice advantage when they return to Madison Square Garden for Game 3.

Phil Kessel and the Penguins struck first on the power play, but that would be the last lead held by the home team.

The Rangers went on to score three straight goals in less than five minutes. Keith Yandle, Derick Brassard, and Mats Zuccarello were the goal scorers.

Henrik Lundqvist was outstanding having stopped 31 Pittsburgh shots, one of which was a breakaway attempt by Brian Rust.

J.T. Miller made some history today after he assisted on three playoff goals in one period. Miller is in the company of some well known players; Jaromir Jagr and Brian Leetch to name a couple.

The Rangers played sound defense throughout the third period to close out the game.

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
