The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers will be meeting at CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday night in a do-or-die Game 7 that will determine who advances to the Eastern Conference Finals against the winner of Game 7 tomorrow night between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens.
With such a crucial game ahead, the NHL has released the names of the officiating crew that will be working tonight’s game.
They are as follows:
- Marc Joannette, referee
- Kevin Pollock, referee
- Scott Driscoll, linesman
- Steve Miller, linesman
This is the same crew that worked the Game 6 meeting between Pittsburgh and New York, which the Rangers won, 3-1.
It will be the first time during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs that the same officiating crew worked back-to-back games in a series, according to Scouting The Refs.
