The Tampa Bay Lightning are one win away from the Stanley Cup Final. The defending champions will take on the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final on Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
The Bolts are coming off a 3-1 win over the Rangers in Game 5 at MSG on Thursday night. The game was mostly tight until late, when Mikhail Sergachev scored to give the Lightning a 2-1 lead before an empty-net goal sealed the victory. Now, the Lightning enter a game in which they’ve dominated over the past three seasons: an elimination game.
The Rangers lost momentum in the series after losing three straight and it looks like the fourth could be coming soon. New York will have to find a way to figure out Andrei Vasilevskiy and be more advantageous on the power play. Igor Shesterkin will also need to stand on his head to keep the Rangers alive.
