Missing key players, New York Rangers fall to Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-2

March 16, 2012

The New York Rangers were without star goalie Henrik Lundqvist, captain Ryan Callahan and defenseman Michael Del Zotto. The Pittsburgh Penguins were riding a 9-game winning streak (21-4-1 since Jan. 11) and welcomed back scoring phenom Sidney Crosby and defenseman Kris Letang, who were previously out with concussions. The result? A 5-2 Pittsburgh win last night at Madison Square Garden and a suddenly close race for the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference, which New York now leads by only 4 points.
