Penguins-Rangers Game 7 Set for 7 p.m. Sunday

Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers

The Pittsburgh Penguins have never lost Game 7 in a playoff series on the road.

They’ll begin to find out Sunday at 7 p.m. if they’ll be able to keep that streak alive.

That’s when they will face the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden in the deciding game of their opening-round series, which is tied, 3-3, after New York’s 5-3 victory at PPG Paints Arena Friday night.

The Penguins won the series-opener at the Garden on Evgeni Malkin’s goal in triple-overtime, but the Rangers rebounded to take Games 2 and 5 there.

The Penguins’ 6-0 mark in Games 7 when they’re the visitors includes a 2-0 victory at Washington May 10, 2017, when the Penguins were en route to the franchise’s most recent championship.

Their other wins in Games 7 on the road came in Washington (1992), New Jersey (1999), Buffalo (2001), Washington (2009) and Detroit (2009).

The last of those, which was preserved by a Marc-Andre Fleury save as time expired, gave the Penguins their third Stanley Cup.

The Rangers, who were down, 3-1, in this series, rallied from a similar deficit to advance in 2014, but Game 7 that season was played at PPG Paints Arena.

Contrary to their success on the road, the Penguins are just 4-7 in Games 7 at home.

The thing I have always loved about the game of hockey is that it really always comes down to the puck. What is it going to do with so many thing’s changing is course. Just like life.
