Seven questions for Rangers-Penguins Game 7

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 7:40 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins have played four series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs prior to their 2014 Eastern Conference Second Round matchup.

But when they play Game 7 on Tuesday, it will be the first time the teams will take a series the distance (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

It's the first time since 1939 the Rangers have rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to force a Game 7 like they have in this series. However, it's the second time since 2011 the Penguins have gone from up 3-1 in a series to facing a seventh game.

In each of those series, the Rangers and Penguins came out on the losing end.

What can they do to change their fates in their head-to-head Game 7 in 2014? Here are seven questions that could provide an answer:


Ramsay: Wild must stop Blackhawks' stretch passes

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 6:33 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to break down the action. Ramsay will be checking in throughout the series.

Ramsay played in more than 1,000 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres before going on to coach the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay was most recently an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

The Minnesota Wild are perfect at Xcel Energy Center in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs with five wins in five games.

If they want to stay that way and extend their season by at least one more game, longtime NHL coach and player Craig Ramsay said the Wild need to make two relatively minor adjustments against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6 of their Western Conference Second Round series Tuesday (9 p.m. ET; CNBC, TSN, RDS2).

"They have to make it difficult on the goalie by getting someone in front of him," Ramsay told NHL.com, "and they have to be aware of those stretch passes."


Five things Wild must do to force Game 7

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 6:02 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild are not ready to start their summer vacation. Yet, the Wild know if they don't find a way to win their next two games, the ugly specter of almost four months without meaningful hockey will become a reality.

The task starts Tuesday with Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks at Xcel Energy Center in this entertaining Western Conference Second Round series (9 p.m. ET; CNBC, TSN, RDS2). Chicago leads the best-of-7 series 3-2 and can book passage to a second straight Western Conference Final with a victory Tuesday, or Thursday in Game 7 if it becomes necessary.

It is a tough position to be in, but one which the Wild are intimately familiar. In the first round, against the Colorado Avalanche, Minnesota dropped the first two games on the road, won the following two home games and then was relegated to the brink of elimination after losing Game 5 on the road. It has been the same path to a do-or-die Game 6 against the Blackhawks.

Can the Wild fashion a Game 6 victory at Xcel Energy Center against the defending Stanley Cup champions to force a winner-take-all Game 7 like they did against the Avalanche?

That question will be answered Tuesday night, but Minnesota's best chance for a positive outcome -- and another Stanley Cup Playoffs game on Thursday -- will only happen if they accomplish these five things:


Russia routs U.S., Canada edges Czechs at Worlds

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 5:16 PM / News


Linemates Alex Ovechkin, Viktor Tikhonov and Sergei Plotnikov combined for four goals and eight points when Russia earned some measure of revenge against the United States in a 6-1 victory in preliminary-round action of the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Minsk Arena in Belarus on Monday.

Russia was beaten by the United States, 8-3, in the quarterfinal round of the 2013 World Championship. Led by Ovechkin, captain of the Washington Capitals, Russia is unbeaten in three games this year and sits atop the Group B standings. Russia is seeking its first gold medal since the 2012 WC.

"We played very aggressive hockey, and scored another early goal even though we've not had much chance to rest," Russian coach Oleg Znaroks told the IIHF website. "A win's and win and I'm happy for the guys."


Bernier, Gunnarsson have successful surgeries

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 4:34 PM / News


Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier and defenseman Carl Gunnarsson each underwent successful surgeries at the end of the season, the team announced Monday.

Bernier had surgery to repair a sports hernia, while Gunnarsson had hip surgery. They are progressing well and along with forward Joffrey Lupul (knee meniscus surgery) are expected to be fully recovered for the start of training camp in September.

Bernier was eighth in the NHL with a .923 save percentage despite facing the seventh-most shots in the League. He was 26-19-7 with a 2.68 goals-against average in his first season with Toronto.


Penguins, Rangers vie for East Final berth in Game 7

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 4:29 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round


NEW YORK -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers will decide their Eastern Conference Second Round series on Tuesday night in Game 7 at Pittsburgh's CONSOL Energy Center (7 p.m., ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS). The winner will advance to the Eastern Conference Final and face the winner of the Second Round series between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens.

These teams have never met in a series-deciding showdown but are no strangers to Game 7s in recent years.

The Rangers will be contesting a Game 7 for the fifth time in their past seven playoff series since 2012. Having eliminated the Philadelphia Flyers in seven games in the First Round, New York will attempt to post Game 7 wins in consecutive series for the second time in that span; they defeated the Ottawa Senators and Washington Capitals in the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals and Semifinals, respectively.


Game 7 has been winning proposition for Rangers

Monday, 05.12.2014 / 2:50 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- If Game 7 is becoming old hat to the New York Rangers, winning them isn't.

The Rangers will be looking for their fifth straight Game 7 victory since 2012 when they face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at Consol Energy Center (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). It's their sixth Game 7 in their past nine Stanley Cup Playoff series dating back to 2009.

New York previously beat the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 7 on April 30 to advance to play the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Second Round series.

"We have a lot of guys in the room that enjoy the challenge and just the excitement of it," Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said. "I feel like everyone doesn't really feel the pressure of Game 7 because either you play your best or you're going home. You kind of just get to leave it all out there and see what happens. We've had some big moments and big plays at key times in other Game 7s, and that's what it takes."
