Rangers in familiar spot, back home after 2 road losses

The New York Rangers have been in a similar position before in this postseason

They returned home after falling into a 3-1 series hole and won three straight to advance.

In the second round, they were down 2-0 and won four of the next five to move on.

New York tied 2-2 with two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference final

Two of the last three games will be at home, where they've won eight straight.

I think we’re probably in the best spot we’ve been through three series,

The Rangers will be looking to rediscover the offense that seemed to be rolling along the first two games

New York led 2-0 midway through Game 3 before Tampa Bay scored three times to eke out a win.

The Lightning then held the Rangers off the scoreboard until late in the third period of a 4-1 win in Game 4

The Rangers aren't discouraged by their losses on the road, where they are 2-7 this postseason.

It’s a best of three in the Eastern Conference finals and it’s something to be excited about as a group,
