Rangers Stay Alive, Will Host Game 7
Backs to the wall once again, the New York Rangers rallied for a seven goal performance to setup at deciding Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals for the right to the play for Lord Stanley's Cup.
Derick Brassard had a late empty-netter to give him a hat trick and added an assist, while Rick Nash and J.T. Miller each posted a goal and three assists to stave off elimination on the road in a 7-3 Game 6 victory in Tampa. Despite being shutout in Game 5, New York has scored 17 goals in the last four games of the series.
The Blueshirts are now 4-0 when facing elimination this postseason. They'll host Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots while his counterpart Ben Biship got the hook in the third period after allowing 5 goals on 22 shots.
