(SportsNetwork.com) - A pair of Metropolitan Division rivals square off for the final time this regular season on Sunday afternoon when the New York Rangers visit the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Rangers are 2-0-1 versus the Penguins this season, picking up a pair of wins at home around a shootout loss in Pittsburgh. That setback on Nov. 15 marked New Yorks sixth loss in its past seven trips to the Steel City. New York is looking to get back on track as it ended a two-game slide with Fridays 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Rangers had won 13 of 14 before taking consecutive shutout defeats to the New York Islanders and Boston Bruins. Marc Staal and Chris Kreider scored in the second period on Friday to break New Yorks scoring drought, with Derek Stepan assisting on both goals. Stepan had sat out the previous contest with an upper-body injury. Henrik Lundqvist did his part with 35 saves as New York answered after losing consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 1 and 6. You could see when we scored that first goal we relaxed a bit, Lundqvist said. We started playing a lot better. We had more speed in our game. Owners of a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, the Rangers are four points back of the second-place Penguins in the division. Pittsburgh is three points behind the front-running New York Islanders and coming off a 6-3 setback to the first-place club. The Penguins led 3-2 going into the third period thanks to a pair of goals by Sidney Crosby, who also assisted on David Perrons fourth goal in five games since being acquired from Edmonton. However, the Islanders netted four goals in the third period. We just didnt raise our level enough in the third period, Crosby said. At the start of it, we did. But as the period went on, we didnt make smart plays. We hurt ourselves with some of the decisions we made. Theyre a good team. You give them chances like that and theyre going to put them in. Kris Letang had a pair of assists and Marc-Andre Fleury yielded five goals on 34 shots as the Pens had a two-game win streak snapped. Fleury is 27-15-9 with a 2.74 goals against average, .909 save percentage and four shutouts in 52 career meetings with the Rangers, all but one of those starts. Lundqvist has faced the Pens 54 times, going 27-19-8 with a 2.41 GAA and .916 save percentage while shutting them out three times. Andrew McCutchen Jersey . The San Antonio Spurs handled the conditions, and the team, and it sure helped when a suffering LeBron James couldnt make it to the finish. Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys . Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. "Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear," said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. http://www.pittsburghpiratesprostore.us/Customized/. -- Downcast before the final game of what had been a difficult road trip, the Ottawa Senators found a way to dig out a little momentum in the desert before heading home. Sean Rodriguez Jersey . Left back Armero opened the scoring in the fifth minute when his deflected shot rolled past Greece goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis. Striker Teofilo Gutierrez poked in Colombias second goal from a deflected corner in the 58th and James Rodriguez capped it off with a low shot in stoppage time after a slick backheel flick from Juan Cuadrado. Kent Tekulve Jersey . Signs of a turnaround have emerged in this series at Minnesota. Brian Roberts had three doubles and a triple for the first four-extra-base-hit game of his 14-year career, and the Yankees used their bullpen to preserve a 6-5 win over the Twins on Friday.Former Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand, whose recovery from a paralyzing injury suffered during a game has become a unifying and inspirational story for the school, was announced Tuesday as one of its commencement speakers, a day after he said the offer to do so was rescinded "for political reasons." The announcement from Rutgers President Robert Barchi, who said there was a "miscommunication" about the speeches, is the latest development in a strange saga surrounding the May 18 ceremony. The New Jersey university initially announced that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would give the keynote address, and school officials maintained that she would not be "disinvited" as some students and faculty protested her selection, including holding a sit-in last week. They objected largely because of her role in deciding the U.S. would go to war in Iraq. But on Saturday, Rice withdrew from the speech. On Monday, former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean, who was one of the chairmen of the Sept. 11 Commission, was named as the new keynote speaker. Hours after that announcement, LeGrand tweeted that he had been offered the chance to give the speech, but that the university rescinded the offer "for political reasons." Rutgers spokesman Greg Trevor said when university officials spoke with LeGrand, they may have given the impression that he was to be the keynote speaker, when that was not the plan. LeGrand will speak before Kean at the ceremony. LeGrand did not return a message from The Associated Press seeking further details. He told NJ.com that athletic director Julie Hermann told him on Monday that Rutgers had decided tto go with another speaker.dddddddddddd Trevor said he would look into that assertion. "I just want an explanation," LeGrand told the website. "I wish somebody would have given me a call tonight and explained to me why. Then I can understand, but dont just leave me hanging." In his statement Tuesday afternoon, Barchi said LeGrand had been invited as one of multiple speakers. "It was never our intention that Eric would be the only speaker. We have resolved that miscommunication and are delighted to have him participate," Barchi said. "Eric holds a special place in the hearts of the class of 2014 and the entire university community. We are thrilled that he will be joining us on stage to make this special occasion ever more memorable." LeGrand also will receive a degree at the ceremony. He was paralyzed from the neck down while making a tackle on a kickoff during a 2010 game against Army. He now is able to breathe on his own and stand upright with the help of a metal frame. LeGrand is known mostly for his hopeful outlook. He has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, helped with Rutgers football broadcasts, become a motivational speaker and signed a symbolic contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they were coached by his former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano. Last fall, LeGrand became the first football player to have his number retired by the university. LeGrand told the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick that he was mapping out what he would say in a speech. "I was just going to give inspirational words about how they should attack life," he said. "All the things Ive learned so far." Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
