A trio of key reinforcements arrived at a critical time for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Captain Sidney Crosby is in the lineup for Game 7 against the New York Rangers. Crosby missed Game 6 after suffering an injury from a high hit by Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba in Game 5.

Pittsburgh's No. 1 goalie Tristan Jarry is back between the pipes for the first time this series. He's been out since mid-April due to a foot ailment.

Penguins winger Rickard Rakell is also in the lineup for the first time since Game 1 due to an upper-body injury.

Brian Boyle and Drew O'Connor come out of the lineup with the returns up front. Boyle is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Third-stringer Louis Domingue will serve as Jarry's backup. He started the series in that role before taking over for Casey DeSmith, who suffered a core muscle injury in Game 1 and hasn't returned.
