Tonight in Ottawa, the Senators will host the New York Rangers for Game 1 of their second round Eastern Conference best-of-seven series. In the regular season, the Senators got the better of New York, going 2-1 in their three meetings.
The Rangers secured a spot in the 2017 NHL playoffs by earning one of the two wild card bids in the East. They went 48-28-6 in the regular season, amassing 102 points over 82 games. In their first round playoff matchup, the Rangers dispatched the Montreal Canadiens in six games. It was a hard-fought series, as two of the games went into overtime.
Even though the Rangers ended the regular season with more points than the Senators, Ottawa will still have home ice advantage in the series. The Senators went 44-28-10, fishing second in the Atlantic Division with 98 points. Ottawa advanced past the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs in a thrilling six game series. Four of the games went into overtime, including a double-overtime battle in Game 5 and the Game 6 clincher.
