The Rangers and the Penguins are the favorites to emerge from the East this season. Big-time test for two clubs coming off games yesterday.

The Pens are 1-0-0 after a 3-1 win in Philadelphia. The demons of last April aren't gone yet, but at least they've been quieted. The defense and goaltending seemed to have cast the monkey from their backs.

New York dropped their opener in Boston by the same score.

Big night for new faces. Rick Nash is now part of New York's top-six. Tomas Vokoun will get his first start as a Penguin.

The Pens took the season series from the Rangers last year, four games to two, scoring four or more goals in half those contests.

Big division points on the line.
