Pregame: Penguins at New York Rangers, 7 p.m.

NEW YORK – A win tonight won’t make Tuesday, May 13 seem any less strange. It won’t remove the picture of Dan Bylsma and the suit he wore and the frustration on his face while standing behind the Penguins’ bench …

Pregame: Penguins vs. Sabres, 7 p.m.

There’s pretty much no reason the Penguins should lose to the Buffalo Sabres at Consol Energy Center tonight. Then again, pieces of paper and stats don’t play hockey games. People do. The Penguins (6-2-1) know – or least they’re really, …

There’s probably one line in the NHL better than the Penguins’ grouping of Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist, and it will take the ice tonight at Consol Energy Center. Tyler Toffoli, Jeff Carter and Tanner Pearson have combined …
