Another night, another big game for the Rangers. This time, it’s win or go home. Well, it’s win and come home too, but you know what I mean. The Rangers have been thoroughly thrashed for two of the past three games, and had the worst luck ever conceived by man for that other one (Game Three). If they play like they did in Games One and Three, they have a shot. If they play like they did in Games Two and Four, they are done.
Justin did an entire breakdown of this series, and it’s great reading if you haven’t done so already. The Rangers will need to find a way to win. I think if they win tonight, they will also win Game Six and send it back to Pittsburgh for a Game Seven. That’s a big IF though.
Henrik Lundqvist gets the start.
Game time is 7pm on NBCSN. Don’t forget to check out our Rangers Tickets link for deals to attend games."Metro Division Finals Game 5: Rangers on the brink",
