The Rangers came out as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference after the regular season and earned the right to home-ice advantage in the event of a seventh game in the playoffs. But I don’t think anyone thought they would be needing that advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

After trailing early on Monday night, the Rangers staved off elimination to force a Game 7 at home on Thursday night and look to advance to the second round for the first time since the 2007-08 season. And Thursday night’s win-or-go-home game will most likely come down to the play of Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers since it always does.

WFAN and WFAN.com hockey correspondent Brian Monzo joined me to talk about the Rangers’ Game 6 win over the Senators, what to expect in Game 7 and why the officiating has been so bad throughout the playoffs.
