Well, the Rangers have now gone about 87 minutes without being awarded a power play, and the crowd here on Heritage Night booed when Mark Stuart's stick from the side caught Marian Gaborik up around the throat on a semi-breakaway and he crashed into the net. No call.
Gaborik, on the other end of the ice moments later, was callled for hooking Nathan Horton. More jeering.
Bs will be on the PP for another 1:15 at start of second.
Shots are eight each.
On the good news side, Rangers are playing better compared to the first period in Pittsburgh. But they need far more shots and deflections on Tim Thomas.
