After a dominant performance in Game 1, Rangers are aiming for a 2-0 lead when they take on the Lightning in Game 2 tonight.
New York leapfrogged a flat-footed Tampa Bay team Wednesday night, riding to a 6-2 win thanks to two goals from Filip Chytil, multi-point efforts from four Rangers and excellent play at the net from Igor Shesterkin.
However, the Lightning have bounced back from a loss in the past. Tampa Bay has yet to lose a consecutive game in the postseason in its last three playoff runs. That’s correct. Since the 2020 playoffs, they have been 17-0 after a defeat.
