The NBC Sports Network and NHL Network will team up to deliver a Game 7 extravaganza for hockey fans Thursday night.
First, the New York Rangers will host the Ottawa Senators at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. The top-seeded Rangers staved off elimination with a win in Ottawa on Monday to earn a trip back home to Madison Square Garden for the series-deciding game. This game will also be televised on CBC and RDS in Canada.
Then, at 8:30 p.m. ET, on the NHL Network, the Florida Panthers face off against the New Jersey Devils at BankAtlantic Center. The NBC Sports Network will join the Devils-Panthers game in progress following the conclusion of the Senators-Rangers game. The Panthers, who won the first division title in franchise history this season, are looking to win their first postseason series in 16 years, but now need a Game 7 to do it after New Jersey's dramatic OT victory in Game 6 on Tuesday. This game will also be televised on TSN and RIS in Canada.
