Rangers hoping to make franchise history as Penguins try to keep change at bay in Game 7

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The New York Rangers are on the verge of a franchise first.

If the Rangers can beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night, they will have rallied from a 3-1 series deficit for the first time in team history.

New York has won two straight to force a deciding game, including a dominant 3-1 victory in Game 6 on Sunday. Game 7s aren't new territory for the Rangers, who are 4-0 in Game 7s since 2012.

The Penguins have struggled since taking control of the series with two wins in New York last week. Pittsburgh is just 2-6 all time at home in Game 7s, including a loss to Tampa Bay in the opening round in 2011.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
