It's time for another Wednesday Night Rivalry, as the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the New York Rangers, and NHL Live with Steve Mears and E.J. Hradek, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, has the action previewed as analyst Pierre McGuire will join us from the Arena Cam at Madison Square Garden.
We'll also hear from Rangers assistant coach Ulf Samuelsson, a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Penguins whose son, defenseman Philip Samuelsson, just made his NHL debut for Pittsburgh. Ulf's son and Philip's younger brother Henrik Samuelsson is also expected to go to Sweden for the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship as a member of the U.S. squad.
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler and forward Kyle Palmieri will join the show to discuss the strong play of the team this season and its upcoming 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game against California rival the Los Angeles Kings.
