On the ice, the Canes play a bit of a hybrid forechecking system. They play an aggressive 2-3 to start the game, but will switch to a trap late in the game with a lead. In the defensive zone , they run box + 1 system, which is a box setup in front with a player pressuring depending on the puck location. On special teams, the Canes run an umbrella powerplay and a hybrid penalty kill (varies between the systems based on puck location).
Rangers Lineup (unconfirmed):
Henrik Lundqvist gets the start
PP1: Del Zotto-Richards, Kreider-Stepan-Brassard
