New York has an incredible record of being 14-3 in elimination games since 2012 and they've won four Gmae 7's in the past two years. But, in order to play this series to its limit, they have to come through in Game 6.

"We've obviously been in a few of these situations in the past and are very confident that our group is going to enjoy the opportunity and enjoy the challenge, get ready for it and come up with a good game," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said.

No one's doubting the Rangers will be ready but there's significant frustration in the New York locker room about the way that the Lightning won in Game 5.

With a 2-0 loss on Sunday, Tampa Bay limited the Rangers in their offensive zone and blocked an obscene amount of shots that never got to Lightning goalie Ben Bishop.

"We know the situation we're in," Rangers center Derek Stepan said. "We have to stay confident."
