The New York Rangers have done it again, salvaging their Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 2 series against the Carolina Panthers, and headed for Game 5 at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Thursday, May 26 (5/26/2022).
The game will be broadcast on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET, and can be streamed live on fuboTV, Sling and more live TV services.
After falling behind 0-2 in their first two games against the Hurricanes in Raleigh, the series flipped to Madison Square Garden, and the home field advantage was just what New York needed to even the score. The series is now 2-2 following their 4-1 win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday.
New York has crushed the idea that Carolina is a superior team. Andrew Copp, who scored one of the Ranger’s four goals on Tuesday, told the NY Post, “I think the never-die mentality has been in this team from Day 1.”
