The New York Rangers Will Need A Win To Get To Game 7

from Mollie Walker of the New York Post,

After losing 3-1 to the Hurricanes in Game 5 Thursday night at PNC Arena, the Rangers will need to stave off elimination for a fourth time this postseason at Madison Square Garden on Saturday and then be the first team in these playoffs to defeat Carolina at home in a Game 7 Monday in order to keep their season alive.

Carolina now has a chance to clinch this series in New York in Game 6 and advance to play the Lightning in the Eastern Conference final.

The Rangers, on the other hand, will see if they have at least one more comeback in them this season.

“We’re down 3-1 last series, we’re down 2-0 in this series, and all that matters is that next game,” said Ryan Strome, who led the Rangers with four shots on goal and did not receive much help from his fellow top-six players. “I think this group has really bought into that. Everyone was talking about momentum after Games 3 and 4, and tonight they won. It was just single game, we got to get back at it and win one game.”...

“I didn’t think we played our game at all,” head coach Gerard Gallant said. “I thought we were reaching with sticks all night instead of finishing checks with the body like we did the other nights. To me, it was the worst game in the five games so far in this series. They pretty well dominated that game tonight.”

The Hurricanes have yet to win on the road in the playoffs and there is no way they do so in game six.
