NEW YORK RANGERS (0-0) AT PITTSBURGH PENGUINS (0-0), 7 P.M.

(SportsNetwork.com) - In order for the New York Rangers to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the second time in three years, the club is going to have to do something its never done before: beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs.

The Rangers hope to strike first in this fifth postseason meeting between the franchises, as they visit Pittsburgh for Friday's Game 1 battle at CONSOL Energy Center.

The Penguins are 4-0 all-time in postseason series against the Blueshirts and boast a 16-4 record over those four playoff encounters. The only time New York was able to post more than one win in a series against the Pens was in the 1992 Division Finals, when Pittsburgh downed the Rangers in six games en route to its second straight Stanley Cup title.

The most recent playoff encounter was in the 2008 conference semifinals when Pittsburgh ousted the Rangers in five games.
