Penguins Vs. Rangers Score Update: Pittsburgh And New York Even After Two Periods

After two periods at Madison Square Garden, the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers are all tied up at 1-1. The Rangers evened it in the second period on a Carl Hagelin goal. It was the eighth goal of the season for the impressive youngster out of Michigan. Hagelin's score matched Chris Kunitz's first period goal that beat Henrik Lundqvist.

Most notably for Pens fans, Kris Letang played for the first time in 21 games, after sitting out with a broken nose and concussion. The Pens threw Letang right back into the fire, and he's leading the team in ice time through the first two periods. This game was hyped as a battle between two of the game's top goaltenders, and neither have disappointed so far. The Pens will have to continue apply pressure to Lundqvist in the final period if they want to escape New York with a win against the league's best team.
