Evgeni Malkin scored in triple overtime as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the New York Rangers in a marathon Game 1.

It marked the 54th game in the history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs to require at least three overtime periods. It was also the longest game ever at Madison Square Garden.

Third-string goaltender Louis Domingue earned the victory for Pittsburgh. He stopped all 17 shots he faced upon entering in the second OT period after Casey DeSmith suffered an apparent injury. Tristan Jarry – the Pens’ primary starter – has been out since April 14 with a lower-body injury.
