The New York Rangers host the Carolina Hurricanes for Game 3 of their Stanley Cup playoff series, which goes to Madison Square Garden on Sunday, May 22 (05/22/2022).
The Rangers are down 0-2 in their conference semifinal series, and for the second time in this Stanley Cup playoffs, they will need to stage a major comeback to survive. Moving to Madison Square Garden will at least give them the home court advantage, but New York will have to start playing offensively if they want to turn things around. So far, they have only scored one goal in this series.
In Game 2, the Hurricanes scored once each in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Antti Raanta finished with 21 saves to fend off Rangers.
