The Stanley cup finals will make their way to Madison Square Garden tonight in what is a must-win game 3 for the New York Rangers.
It’s been a fairy-tale ride for NY up until now and fans are hoping there’s some magic left to pull off another unbelievable win. The first 2 games of the playoffs resulted in heart-breaking OT losses for the Rangers.
They had the lead in game 1, but couldn’t hang on and lost 3-2. Game 2 was pretty much the same with NY blowing the lead and losing in double OT 5-4, making tonight’s game a do-or-die situation for them.
Since going to a 7 game format, 291 teams have been down 0-2 and 37 times they’ve come back to win, which is about a 12% winning percentage. However, the Rangers have been defying the odds throughout the playoffs and in sports anything is possible.
The series has featured great defensive play by both teams and intense offensive moves that have resulted in thrilling moments: tonight’s game promises to continue that trend.
