The New York Rangers start their week against the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena on Sunday, January 24 (1/24/2021), looking to come back after Pittsburgh beat them 4-3 in a shootout on Friday. The game will air on the regional sports network MSG’s overflow channel in the New York market, which is available to stream live on on fuboTV and AT&T TV, and on ESPN Plus. The Rangers are 1-2 with 1 overtime loss so far in the season, near the bottom of the newly-formed East Division.
Social media detectives remain undefeated, and polarizing Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo may have just met their wrath.
On Friday, Lafreniere got to face Crosby for the first time while skating on the Rangers’ first line with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. Crosby skated on Pittsburgh’s top line. Getting first-line minutes for the first time against Crosby and the Penguins must have been surreal for Lafreniere, but it was also likely a wake-up call.
