Devils vs Rangers preview – Game 7

The Stanley Cup playoffs continue tonight at 8 pm ET when the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers face off in a win-or-go-home Game 7. The hockey Gods have graced us with an amazing series in the East, with the Devils and Rangers are facing off in the playoffs for the first time in 11 years. 

After setting themselves up with an early 2-0 series lead, the Rangers seemed to have lost their luster as the Devils fought back and could have sealed the deal in Game 6. The Rags had other ideas, however, as they toppled the Devils to force a decisive Game 7. This is what East Coast fans live for. 

Twice has the playoff series between these two gone the full stretch to seven games (make that three times now!) with 1994’s double OT Rangers win still plaguing Devils fans today. New York is 4-2 overall against New Jersey in the Playoffs, with the Devil’s having the last laugh in 2012 but falling short of the Stanley Cup.

The festivities in which 21-year-old Jack Hughes – the No.1 overall pick in 2019 – will be a speedy, fighting force against Igor Shesterkin and the Blueshirts. While NJ has home ice to start, it's only their second trip since falling short in 2012. The Rangers, on the other hand, bring along the most recent postseason experience with a slightly older and more experienced squad.

Whichever way it goes, this rivalry is one that has stood the test of time. Of the four times these two met during the regular season, the Devils have come out on top for three, with the Rangers sneaking out one in overtime.

The best-of-seven series comes to a conclusion tonight, May 1st, at 8 pm ET with Game 7. Here's how to watch a Devils vs Rangers live stream no matter where you are in the world. Pro tip: you might want to try a VPN if you're looking to tune into NHL while abroad.
