Boston gained a 2-0 series lead with late surges in each contest. The Bruins dominated Game 1 in overtime and Brad Marchand made sure his team went home with the victory. Boston took over in the third period of Game 2, cruising to a comfortable 5-2 win and 2-0 series lead.
For the second time this year, the Rangers face a 0-2 series hole before taking the ice at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers were able to win four of five games against the Washington Capitals, but no team in NHL history has overcome multiple 2-0 series deficits. The Rangers must find ways to score against the tenacious Bruins squad.
New York’s goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, is currently dealing with a minor shoulder injury. Lundqvist vowed that the injury will not slow him down. The Rangers must slow down Marchand, who has four points, two goals and two assists in two games. Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci each have three assists.
Getting to tonight’s game may be a hassle, but we recommend checking out the brand new Penn Station Parking for fast and easy parking. The Rangers have won their last three home playoff games at Madison Square Garden. Let’s hope they can notch their fourth consecutive victory tonight.
