The Pittsburgh Penguins' injury list continues to grow. But despite a roster laden with minor-league call-ups, the Penguins have taken command in the Metropolitan Division race as they prepare for their second visit of the season to Madison Square Garden in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

The Penguins come to the Garden with four consecutive victories and nine wins in their past 10 games. The New York Rangers play the sixth of a nine-game homestand that saw them lose the first four before beating the Calgary Flames 4-3 in a shootout Sunday.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
