Carolina is riding high with the momentum from its win. However, it hasn’t won any postseason games on the road this season. Game 6 will be at Madison Square Garden. The home team has won all of this series’ games. The Rangers have the chance to force a game seven against the Eastern Conference’s best team in this series. However, they will need Artemi Pantarin to lead the charge. He led New York to score 96 points but has only two points this series.
Prediction: Rangers win 3-1
