Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins lead the series 2-1 following a 7-4 victory in Game 3 on Saturday, May 7.

Averaging 3.28 goals per game, the Penguins were carried all season by their offense. They have taken over the series in the First Round with 13 goals in three games, including 7 goals in Game 3. Jake Guentzel scored 4 goals while Sidney Crosby and Bryan Rust added 2 goals and 8 assists to the top line. Overall, the entire offense has been great.

Louis Domingue is expected to be a starting goalie for the Penguins in Game 4. Dominguez has performed admirably with a save percentage of 0.903 through the first three games after Tristan Jarry and backup Casey DeSmith were injured.

Rangers

The New York Rangers have struggled in the first round despite their offense stepping up and scoring 12 goals in the first three games. On Saturday, the Rangers came back from a 4-1 deficit in Game 3 to tie the game with under 10 minutes remaining in the third period.

The Rangers are averaging only 2.49 goals per game this season. Although their offense has improved, their defense has struggled, allowing 13 goals in the first three playoff games. Igor Shesterkin was pulled from the starting lineup after he allowed 4 goals on 15 shots for a save percentage of 0.733.

Shesterkin must put on a strong performance in Game 4 to even up the series, or else the series can quickly turn into a losing battle against an experienced Penguins squad.
