The New York Rangers are just a single win away from booking their trip to the Eastern Conference Finals. They have a perfect opportunity to close it out tonight with a win, so they need to make it count.

Player To Watch:


Brad Richards

#19 / Center / New York Rangers

Richards was as clutch as you can get last game, in which he tied the game with 6.6 seconds remaining. I can feel that momentum carrying over into this game as well.
