There remains a vacancy in the NHL Conference Finals, and that could be decided on Saturday night in Game 6 of the Hurricanes vs. Rangers second-round series.
Carolina holds a 3-2 series lead after claiming a 3-1 win Thursday night. It’s one win away from making the Eastern Conference Finals against the Lightning. On the other side, New York is looking to fight elimination and force a win-win Game 7 on Monday.
Rangers are no strangers to having their backs against the wall. In the first round, they battled 3-1 in the series to defeat the Penguins, overcoming 2-0 deficits in Games 5 and 6 before coming from behind and beating Pittsburgh in overtime in Game 7.
The pattern the Hurricanes fell into also works in favor of the Rangers. Carolina has been dominant at home, holding a 7-0 record at the PNC Arena; while playing away, the Canes are yet to claim a single victory, going 0-5 in these playoffs.
Will the trend continue and will New York stay alive? Or can Carolina close the series? The Sporting News will provide live updates and highlights of the series’ decisive potential.
