Depleted Penguins brace for visit from Rangers

The Pittsburgh Penguins find their lineup on defense in disarray just over a week into the season.

The Penguins look to overcome that hurdle when they vie for their third straight victory on Friday against the visiting New York Rangers.

Already without Mike Matheson because of a long-term upper-body injury, Pittsburgh will be without defensemen Marcus Pettersson and Juuso Riikola heading into Friday's contest. Pettersson is out week-to-week and Riikola is sidelined long term after sustaining upper-body injuries in the Penguins' 5-4 overtime win over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.
