Game 6. Rangers at Lightning. I think I may have mentioned during the Washington series once or twice, or thrice, that this could be the final “It’s Go Time!” of the season. I think it’s a coin-flip game, and I predicted 1-1 after two, 2-2 after four, 3-3 after…

46 Rangers still have a lot of work to do vs. Lightning
