The Carolina Hurricanes are just one win away from the New York Rangers’ end of the season, but Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinal Series will take place on the ice at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, May 28. The team won every game.
To extend the series, the Rangers will have to rebound from what coach Gerald Gallant called “the worst game in the playoffs.” In that game, Carolina dominated the pack, beating the Rangers 34-17.

Round 6 Featured Players
new york rangers
Igor Shesterkin, Goalkeeper
How well can this goalie fend off a frenetic Hurricanes attack? He faced 34 shots and saved 31 in Game 5.
left wing chris crider
Usually when the Rangers’ offense hums, Crider joins the mix, making key passes that lead to a score, or just shoving the puck behind the crease.
Artemi Panarin, left wing
Panarin has 8 points in the postseason and 5 in the Garden.
Center Sebastian Ajo
Canes has a great possession edge, and that’s how Carolina’s offense works. This pays off for Idiot, who has two goals and two assists in five games.
Teuvo Teraveinen, left wing
Kanes’ most dangerous scorer in the postseason was Terrvainen, but he nearly disappeared along the way. The Finn has 11 points in the playoffs, but only two points away from Carolina.
Aunty Ranta, goalkeeper
All games in this series finished with less than the total (5.5 for each game). There’s little reason to think this important game is any different. That’s why Laanta will be key for Carolina to win his game Stanley his Cup first road of his playoffs.
