New York feels a little like a team of luck and destiny. Now the Rangers have the defending champion Lightning on their heels and ready to deliver the knockout blow Sunday afternoon. The Rangers look faster, fresher and more skilled. Goalie Igor Shesterkin has outplayed Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. Tampa Bay needs something to tilt the ice and it won’t be the return of No. 1 center Brayden Point. Look for captain Steven Stamkos and his favorite linemate Nikita Kucherov to put together one last stand in Tampa to try to make this a series.
