After rattling off two consecutive wins in Games 5 and 6, the New York Rangers will have one final opportunity tonight in Game 7. With the Madison Square Garden crowd behind them, the Rangers will look to make history with consecutive series wins after being down 3-1. They did it last year against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they will have an opportunity to do it again tonight against the Capitals.

While the Rangers didn't necessarily play their best game of the series on Sunday, they found a way to beat Braden Holtby four different times. That is something they had yet to do this entire series, and hopefully they can carry that trend over to Game 7. This team has found plenty of ways to win all season long, and they will need to find just one more win this evening in order to advance.

Bryan's Player to Watch: Henrik Lundqvist

When it comes to Game 7's, Henrik Lundqvist is no stranger. Throughout his entire career, he has posted a 5-1 record in Game 7's, along with a 1.00 goals against average, and one shutout. So essentially, this is nothing new for Lundqvist as the Rangers head into tonight's game. Lundqvist has been fantastic all post-season long, and with his team needing one more win to move on, expect him to be a major factor tonight.
