The Penguins had this series almost wrapped up with a 3-1 lead, but they have failed to close it in the last two games. “We worked hard all year to get home ice in the playoffs,” Penguins Sidney Crosby said. “To get to this point we’ve got to look at this like an opportunity and make the most of it.”

The Rangers know momentum is on their side and having goalie Henrik Lundqvist on fire helps a lot. Lundqvist, by the way, was fined $5k for unsportsmanlike conduct, the league announced.

“He takes his game up to another level,” New York coach Alain Vigneault said. “But this Game 7 against this team, it’s going to have to be a team level. It’s going to have to be everybody taking their game to another level.”

The puck line for this game 7 has the Pittsburgh Penguins as 1.5 favorites, and the goals total is at 5; the money line has the home team as -158, while the Rangers are +144.

Pittsburgh is 13-8 against the spread versus NY Rangers over the last 3 seasons, and 11 of 19 games in this series have gone OVER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons.
