The New York Rangers did what they had to do – they burst into life against the Tampa Bay Lightning, with a 7-3 victory on the road. It was an amazing turnaround performance after Game 5, and it guarantees a Game 7 tiebreaker.
Lundqvist also stepped up big, and the Lightning ended up pulling Bishop which is always unfortunate to see at this stage of the season.
We now go onto Game 6 in the other conference final. The Chicago Blackhawks play host to the Anaheim Ducks. Ducks lead the series 3-2, and picked up a 2-1 win in Game in Chicago.
Should be a good one. Remember to nap during the day so you can stay up to watch all 50 freaking overtimes.
Scott: Trading wins up until this game. Ducks were up 3-0 after 1 to have the Hawks out score them 4-1 over the last 2 to push this game to yet another OT. Quick OT this time though, only 45 seconds, and the Ducks won to make the series 3-2. Hawks are at home where they have been strong. They lose and their playoffs are over. With the huge comeback in the last game I wonder how Andersen is going to be tonight? Hopefully shaken up.

Graeme: Yesterday I went with the Lightning, with the reasoning that they absolutely had to win. They didn’t want to go to a Game 7 – and honestly I think the series is over for them now. Tonight you have the Blackhawks who also need to win – and this one they need to win more than the Lightning, because if they lose, they’re out.
I’m going with the Ducks.
This has been one of the tightest NHL series, and regardless of it being the Blackhawks potential last game – the odds are just too good. I actually like the Blackhawks to win too but can’t ignore the odds, or the stats.
