Kasperi Kapanen clicking as Penguins host Rangers

When the Pittsburgh Penguins host the New York Rangers for the second straight game Tuesday, Kasperi Kapanen will likely line up as the right winger with center Evgeni Malkin.

That wasn't the original plan when the Penguins reacquired their 2014 first-round draft pick from Toronto during the offseason. Kapanen was projected as Sidney Crosby's right winger.

But Kapanen, who missed training camp and the start of the season because of visa issues in his native Finland followed by a COVID-19 quarantine period, didn't click -- with Crosby or otherwise.
