There will be a fascinating game seven in the NHL playoffs on Monday evening, as the Rangers and Devils clash for the final time in the opening round. The Devils will be favored to land success in game seven, as they have home advantage in their battle to reach the next round.
However, the Rangers will likely come into the showdown with more confidence, after landing a 5-2 success at Madison Square Garden over the weekend. The Rangers held their nerve in the final stages of that game, as they scored twice in each of the final two periods. Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad, and Barclay Goodrow all scored goals in the win.
Meanwhile, the New Jersey Devils will have home advantage for the final game in this series. However, home advantage hasn’t been the blessing that it has been made out to be in this series, with four of the six previous games being won by the team playing on the road.
The Devils landed a first victory in three attempts at home in game five, as they landed a crucial 4-0 win. However, they wasn’t able to wrap up the series in New Jersey over the weekend, as they fell to a 5-2 defeat. The pressure will be on the hosts on Monday, but they have shown their quality throughout this series to this point.
The Devils wasn’t able to complete the job in game six of the series, and we have already seen outside selections progressing through to the second round. For that reason, we would be prepared to take a chance on the Rangers making it through with a victory in game seven.
