The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to grab their first lead of the second round on Monday when the series shifts to New York City for Game 3 at Madison Square Garden. Trevone Boykin TCU Jersey . This best-of-seven set is tied at one game apiece. The Rangers opened the series with Fridays 3-2 overtime win in Pittsburgh, but the Penguins rebounded with a 3-0 victory Sunday in the Steel City. New York went 20-17-4 at Madison Square Garden during the regular season and posted a 2-1 record on home ice against Philadelphia in the opening round. The Rangers, of course, eliminated the Flyers with a 2-1 Game 7 victory at MSG on Wednesday. Pittsburgh and the Rangers split a pair of meeting in New York this season, but the Pens have claimed five of the last seven regular-season encounters in the Big Apple. Marc-Andre Fleury anchored Sundays home win over the Rangers, making 22 saves to set a franchise record with his seventh career playoff shutout. Pittsburghs frequently criticized netminder also picked up his 50th career postseason win, becoming the 17th goalie in league history to reach the milestone. "He was very good tonight," Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said of Fleury. "The calmness and how he made the saves ... It made it feel like it wasnt as many (chances). But the puck was in the crease a little bit and he played it really well. He deserved the shutout tonight." Kris Letang was credited with a goal and collected assists on third-period goals by Jussi Jokinen and Evgeni Malkin. Letangs goal was the 15th of his postseason career, tying Larry Murphy for the most by a defenseman in franchise history. Pittsburgh won despite giving the Rangers three power-play opportunities in the first 10 minutes of the game. The Pens killed off the three early penalties and New York finished the game 0-for-4 on the power play. "Maybe the penalty killers set the tone for us," said Bylsma. "Maybe it was them stepping over the boards in those situations. You are not happy about having to kill three in a row but they do a great job for us and I thought, to a man, our players were extremely good tonight." Sidney Crosby is still without a goal in eight playoff games this spring, but the Penguins star captain did register six shots on net in Game 2. Crosby, who has 40 career postseason goals, has gone 13 straight games in the playoffs without scoring. He has six assists in this postseason. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 32 shots for New York, which has now failed to score on 29 straight opportunities with the power play. The Blueshirts are just 3- for-37 with the man advantage in this postseason. "Power play had some looks," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said. "Could have given us momentum, we didnt finish. Power play ultimately is my responsibility, and Ive got to find the right trigger points here to make it work and spend the night trying to figure it out." New York is aiming for its first playoff series win against Pittsburgh, which has won all four previous postseason meetings. The Pens boast a 17-5 all-time record against the Rangers in the playoffs and a 7-2 mark at the Garden. Overall, the Rangers have won seven of nine and 12 of their last 17 home playoff games. Pittsburgh defenseman Brooks Orpik has missed three straight games for Pittsburgh with an undisclosed injury and expects to sit out again on Monday. Orpik has been sidelined since missing Game 6 against Columbus in the opening round and Robert Bortuzzo has filled in for him.

I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end.

Rodgers was 34 for 42 for a career-high 480 yards and four touchdowns, receiver James Jones had a career-best 178 yards and James Starks ran for 132 yards and a score in a 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. According to the Packers, it was the first time in NFL history that any team had a 450-yard passer and 125-yard rusher in the same game. "We were able to catch the ball well, had yards after the catch and we were able to run the ball better than we have in a long time," Rodgers said. Rodgers 480 yards passing tied a franchise record set by former teammate Matt Flynn on Jan. 1, 2012, against the Lions. Sunday was also the first time that the Packers had a 400-yard passer and 100-yard rusher in the same game. Rodgers had his big game after waking up with a stiff neck. "I was hurting pretty bad. I wasnt feeling great pregame," Rodgers said. What he termed as an "adjustment" from a trainer once he got to the stadium made him feel better. "Once the adrenaline started going, I just kind got into a rhythm," he said. Especially in the first half. The Packers started sluggish, allowing three sacks of Rodgers in the first 9 minutes, then responded with touchdowns on three straight drives. The defence held Robert Griffin III in check in the first half, and Green Bay rolled to a 24-0 lead at halftime. Green Bay (1-1) bounced back after a season-opening loss at San Francisco. The Redskins (0-2) will need to regroup again after getting off to a slow start for a second straight week. Last week, the Redskins fell behind 26-7 at halftime before rallying in the second half in a 33-27 loss to the Eagles. "We cant really put our finger on what it is, and thats the real frustrating part," Griffin said. He finished 26 for 40 for 320 yards and three touchdowns, but most of that came in the second half with the Packers ahead by three scores. "I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said, "and probably did just the opposite in the first half." Randall Cobb added nine catches for 128 yards and a 35-yard touchdown on a crossing route for a 10-0 lead on a fourth-and-3 play in the first quarter. Rodgers added touchdown passses to Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley in the second quarter. Cheap Washington State Cougars Jerseys. The Packers led 24-0 at the half, and Rodgers already had 335 yards passing. Rodgers credited his receivers for gaining lots of ground after catches against the Redskins secondary. But coach Mike McCarthy knows what Rodgers means to the offence, too. "You know, he spoils me. He makes it look easy," McCarthy said. "No doubt, Aaron is a special football player. Hes at the point of his career where he is about making other people better, pulling everybody up." Such as the time when he scrambled to his right while being chased by Brian Orapko. Rodgers waited just long enough to find Finley for a 3-yard touchdown pass. Not that he watched it. Just at the moment Rodgers released, Orapko took him to the ground on a clean hit. Just as the fans in the stands erupted with delight, Rodgers, on his back, pumped his fist in the air. Griffin, in the second game of his much-anticipated return from right knee surgery, looked OK but didnt resemble the quarterback who confounded defences last year. The Packers defence threw a couple of different wrinkles, including a sack on a blitz by reserve cornerback Davon House. Mike Neal intercepted Griffin after receiver Josh Morgan lost his grip on the ball after being hit by Clay Matthews. Griffins most memorable play of the first half might have been when his helmet flew off while being tackled by linebackers Matthews and A.J. Hawk. "Well be better moving forward," Griffin said. "Well figure this out." Pierre Garcon finished with eight catches for 143 yards against a Packers defence playing again without injured safety Morgan Burnett. Alfred Morris had 13 carries for 107 yards for Washington. Notes: Packers RB Eddie Lacy left the game early in the first quarter with a concussion after getting hit by Redskins S Brandon Meriweather, who also departed in the second quarter after suffering a concussion. Both players were hurt on apparent helmet-to-helmet hits ... Redskins K Kai Forbath missed the game with a sore groin. He was replaced by John Potter, who was signed Saturday. Potter made two extra-point attempts and went wide right on a 50-yard attempt ... The Packers extended their franchise-record streak to 17 straight homes with at least 22 points scored.
