Rangers aim for turnaround against Penguins

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers are sitting in last place in the Eastern Conference at 1-5-0, their worst start since 1980. They are desperate for a victory, and the good news is their next game is on home ice Tuesday night.

The bad news is their opponent is the two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, who have won three of four and have owned the Rangers in recent years. The Penguins captured 10 of their past 14 meetings with New York, including a five-game win in the first round of the 2016 playoffs.

"I've never had a start like this in my career, so it's tough mentally for sure," Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh said to the New York Daily News. "By no means is this group going to quit, I know that for a fact. And I know that we will keep working here and trust our system and we'll start playing the way we need to with a little more edge, a little bit more desperation.
