The New York Rangers Are Roughly 9 To 5 Underdogs With Home Advantage VS The Tampa Bay Lightning

May 31, 2022

Igor Shesterkin, the likely Vezina Trophy winner for the past regular season, made 37 saves and the New York Rangers eased (6-2) at Carolina in game 7, to advance to their first NHL “semi” since 2015.

They will face the two time defending champion, Tampa Bay Lightning, an early, roughly 9 to 5 series favorite, the same team that won the ’15 semi in 7 games.

That was the only time the Rangers ever lost a home 7th game, they are (8-1) in such and (11-6) in any 7th game, having won three straight road 7th’s, to be (3-5) in those tilts, all-time.

Meanwhile, since becoming the Carolina Hurricanes after leaving Hartford (Whalers), the franchise is now (6-1) in game 7.

In a 10 year, 11 season span, the Rangers have played two 7th games (more this season?) in one ‘offs season, four times. (’12, ’14, ’15 and 2022).
