Carolina lost Act III of the series he delivers against the New York Rangers on Sunday night in Manhattan (3-1). But he is still in the lead.

At times, there was tension in the air Sunday night at New York’s Madison Square Garden.


Carolina only leads 2-1 in its series, in the second round of the NHL play-offs. The Hurricanes lost on the ice of Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers on Sunday night (3-1).

Led 2-0 after successes by Mika Zibanejad (12th) and Chris Kreider (26th), Carolina reduced the mark shortly before halfway through a goal from Grison Nino Niederreiter, his fourth in the playoffs, scored with the complicity of Rangers goalkeeper Igor Shesterkin (29th).

The Canes pushed to come back (44 shots on target to 33), in vain, Tyler Motte closing the case in the empty cage (59th). Act IV will take place on Tuesday evening, still in New York.

The Lightning is almost there

For its part, Tampa Bay is only one victory away from qualifying for the Eastern Conference finals. The Lightning leads 3-0 in the series against the Florida Panthers thanks to the wide success obtained Sunday on its ice (5-1). Tampa broke away from the middle third, including a brace from Steven Stamkos.
