Rangers-Penguins Preview

(AP) -- The New York Rangers are winning without their captain and most established scorer, mainly because their most important player has been in top form.

Henrik Lundqvist's recent accomplishments still pale in comparison to those of Sidney Crosby, who'll attempt to extend his career-best goal streak to eight games and help the Pittsburgh Penguins stop the Rangers' surge Wednesday night.

Both clubs have endured ups and downs since last facing off in the 2015 Eastern Conference quarterfinals, when Lundqvist yielded one goal in all four wins as the Rangers took the series in five. The standout goaltender has been just as good of late, allowing five goals as New York (30-18-5) has won three straight for its longest streak since a nine-game run Oct. 25-Nov. 15.
