Recap:

Pittsburgh Penguins 4 New York Rangers 2

Pittsburgh was dominate again against New York. This is something that was unexpected as New York was a far more dominate possession team in the regular season. What changed? Pittsburgh combined the super powers of Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby at their request and then the floodgates opened for the Pens possession wise. There may be more to this. There probably is more to this, but right now this is all I got. Pittsburgh leads the series 3-1. Game five goes Friday at 6:00 CST.

Rick Nash was a hired hand and he is really struggling to score goals right now.

Sean Gentille also tackles the Rick Nash question. I am sad to say that Nash is not a zombie.

Crosby and Malkin being line mates is only a thing because of Jussi Jokinen. Did you know Pittsburgh got him for free 50% off?
