Game 2 Vs Rangers

Evgeni Malkin came back this afternoon but it was the New York Rangers that won 4-2 to even the series at 1 game apiece.    It was a scoreless first period and the Penguins had the better of the play.   Phil Kessel scored on a power play to give the Pens a 1-0 lead, and then the Rangers took control of the game.  Keith Yandle and Derrick Brassard scored goals eighteen second apart to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead.    Matt Zuccarello scored later in the period to give them a 3-1 lead.   Chris Krieder scored thirty-nine seconds into the 3rd period to give the Rangers a 4-1.  Kessel scored his 2nd power play to cut it to 4-2, but it was a close as the Penguins would get.  Henrik Lundqvist was back in-goal for the Rangers and he was sterling.   Jeff Zatkoff was good for the Penguins, but was betrayed by his defense.  Game 3 will Tuesday at Madison Square Garden with face at 7:00 P.M. The big question is will Marc-Andre Fleury be in goal for the Pens.
