NEW YORK — Evgeni Malkin sent the Rangers home from Game 1 of their first-round playoff series tired and utterly disappointed.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star ended a triple-overtime affair at Madison Square Garden with a deflection goal in front of the net to hand the Blueshirts a 4-3 loss and drop them into a 0-1 hole to begin the seven-game series. It came 5:58 into the third OT on the 83rd shot of the night Rangers goalie Igor Shesterkin saw.  

The Pens played the final 16:40 with third-string goalie Louis Domingue. No. 1 Tristan Jarry has been out since April 14 due to a broken foot, and while backup Casey DeSmith played admirably in his absence, he exited during the second overtime with an undisclosed injury.
