It’s do or die tonight, as the Rangers are looking to stave off elimination from the Senators. After coughing up a lead and losing in overtime, the Rangers gave the series lead back to the Senators. This second round matchup could potentially wrap up at Madison Square Garden as game six carries a lot of weight for both teams.
The Rangers were my favorites to appear in the eastern conference finals after they were able to knock out the Montreal Canadiens. New York seemed to prove they can move the puck up and down the ice, as they just seemed to have Montreal number for a majority of their series. But game five had shades of game two, as the Rangers had the lead, lost the lead, gained the lead back, lost it again, and then the eventual loss in overtime. If only the Rangers were able to win one of those two overtimes, they would be heading back to New York with a chance to win the series. However, the Rangers are looking down the barrel of the gun, as they have to throw everything they have at the Senators if they want to keep their postseason alive.
The Senators seem to be a completely different team in the second round compared to the first. While I love the Bruins, I did not think they were a strong team going into the playoffs, yet they were able to play on par with the Senators. After comparing the Rangers’ play against the Canadiens to the Senators’ play against the Bruins, I thought for sure the Rangers would dominate. Ottawa seems to have taken the time off between rounds to really analyze and correct their mistakes and shortfalls and they are on the brink of heading to the third round. Two overtime wins helped to seal their series win over the Bruins and the same case could happen here. If the Senators can lay the pressure on the Rangers, Ottawa has a chance of knocking out New York and making it back to their first eastern conference finals in exactly ten years.
Neither team has yet won a game on the road, but that could change tonight as the Rangers and Senators will duke it out in game six. Now that you are caught up on what to expect in tonight’s matchup, check below to see all you viewing options.
