The Rangers vs. Lightning live stream and TV game on Tuesday night will feature Game 6 of their 2015 NHL Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals series. Tampa Bay holds a 3-2 edge in the series, and a win tonight will send them to the Stanley Cup Finals. New York, a team quite familiar with survival in the postseason, will look to tie things up and force a deciding Game 7. Sports fans can watch live streaming online and televised coverage of tonight’s game thanks to the NBC Sports Network.
According to a USA Today report on May 25, the New York Rangers own a 14-3 record in elimination games over the past four seasons. Adding to the proof that this is a team capable of defying the odds and staving off elimination, they’re a perfect 6-0 in Game 7s over that time period. Most recently, they defeated the Washington Capitals in the previous round in order to get to Tampa Bay. New York owned the best regular season record and won the President’s Trophy, and now will try to tie up the series 3-3.
In Game 5, Tampa Bay shut out New York at Madison Square Garden 2-0. Star player Steven Stamkos scored one goal and assisted on another, while Valtteri Filppula scored the other goal. Ben Bishop was stellar in goal, stopping all 26 shot attempts by the Rangers. He helped shut out a team that scored five goals in each of the previous two contests, and now will try to help his team to the Stanley Cup Finals. A win at home will have Tampa Bay awaiting either Chicago or Anaheim for a chance at the Stanley Cup. The Ducks can close out that series on Wednesday night with a win.
For tonight’s odds, the home team is the favorite with a moneyline price of -125 to -135. The underdog Rangers are priced at +115 at a variety of sports books. The goals over/under total stays at five goals for the game. Tampa Bay leads all teams on the future odds to win the championship at 19 to 10, with the Rangers listed last at 9 to 2. The list may change a bit as Chicago is still listed second at 11 to 5, but recently lost their latest game to Anaheim, and are down 2-3 in the Western Conference Finals.
