The Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers will meet on the ice at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday in a battle of division rivals.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (3-2-1): Crosby halted a four-game goal-scoring drought by scoring twice against Florida, both coming on a pair of deflections. “I see him do it all the time,” Sullivan said. “He has such great hand-eye coordination. I think he’s the best in the game around the net, in close. A lot of it speaks to his skill level, but it’s also his determination. He’s in the battle areas all the time.” Pittsburgh has scored five power-play goals over the past three games but has also surrendered three in the past two contests.

ABOUT THE RANGERS (1-5-0): New York has scored 13 goals in its six games and netted more than two on one occasion, prompting coach Alain Vigneault so shuffle all his lines at Monday’s practice, including adding Rick Nash to the top power-play unit. “I’m going to get the continuity once I get the results,” Vigneault said per Newsday. “Two 5-on-5 goals in five (of the) games is not doing it.” The reconfigured No. 1 line at Monday’s practice featured Mika Zibanejad centering Mats Zuccarello and Nash, who call the slow start “a shock.”

Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as -110-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

Off to their worst start in 37 years, the New York Rangers will attempt to turn things around when they host the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions on Tuesday night. The Rangers have managed only two points through their first six games — the fewest since the 1980-81 season — as they brace for a visit from Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

New York opened a six-game homestand with a 3-2 loss to the neighboring New Jersey Devils on Saturday night and has produced four goals during a three-game losing streak. “Hopefully, this is rock bottom here,” captain Ryan McDonagh said after the latest setback. “I’ve never had a start like this in my career, so it’s tough mentally. By no means is this group going to quit.” Since they were pummeled at Chicago 10-1 in the second game of the season, Pittsburgh has won three of its last four, including Saturday’s 4-3 victory over visiting Florida despite surrendering 46 shots on goal. “One of the cornerstone characteristics of our identity has to be becoming a team that’s more difficult to play against,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. “It’s hard to score your way to a championship in this league.”

The Rangers were a 3-2 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Devils. That made winners of bettors who got New Jersey at +143 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Pittsburgh was a 4-3 winner in its last match at home against the Panthers. They won as favorites, while the total score of 7 made winners of OVER bettors.
