Penguins vs. Rangers, game 66: lines, notes

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Penguins have played the New York Rangers once during the first five months of the 2022-23 season.

That’s about to change. Quickly. And dramatically.

Their game against New York today at 4:08 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena will be the first of three against the Rangers in a span of seven days.

That’s right. Almost an entire season series against a Metropolitan Division rival will be shoehorned into a single week, with rematches scheduled for Madison Square Garden Thursday and Saturday.

It will be as close to a playoff series as one can expect to find during the regular season and the Penguins, you might recall, had a fairly memorable best-of-seven against New York last spring.
