Rangers Host Caps In Game 7 Tonight
After finding themselves in a 3-1 hole, the New York Rangers have bounced back with consecutive victories and will host the Washington Capitals in a deciding Game 7 tonight at Madison Square Garden.
And, you should expect a good one; each game of this Eastern Conference Semifinal series has been decided by just one goal. Credit excellent play from the netminders for that. Both Braden Holtby and Henrik Lundqvist made several highlight reel plays in each contest.
In Sunday night's Game 6 in D.C., the Blue Shirts lit the lamp four times, the most they've put in net so far this postseason. More importantly, New York's key players had a hand in all six goals the team has scored in the past two games as they've faced elimination in each.
Chris Kreider has three of those tallies, Ryan McDonough and Carl Hagelin each have one, as does Rick Nash - the team's leading goal scorer in the regular season who snapped an eight-game goalless streak on Sunday night.
The puck is set to drop at 7:30 on NBCSN.
