After three Game 7s on Saturday, the thrilling 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs continue Sunday with another pair of win-or-go-home matchups. Those final two games will finalize the second round, making them must-see TV for hockey fans.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers will open Sunday’s action at 7 pm in Madison Square Garden and on TBS. Pittsburgh had New York on the ropes early, winning three of four games and scoring seven goals in each of the last two contests. Penguins star Sidney Crosby suffered a concussion in Game 5 and after missing Game 6, is back on the Ice for Game 7 along with goaltender Tristian Jarry, who’d missed the last month with an injury. A win would be massive for both teams, as Pittsburgh has lost in the first first round or qualifying round in each of the last three postseasons while New York hasn’t won a playoff series since 2017.
To close the first round, the Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames will battle at the Scotiabank Saddledome at 9:30 pm on ESPN2 and on fuboTV (try for free). The series has been a goalie showcase thus far, as Dallas’ Jake Oettinger is No. 2 in save percentage in these playoffs while Calgary’s Jacob Markstrom is second in goals against average. A Stars win would send them to the second round for the first time since their Stanley Cup final run in 2020, and Calgary is seeking its first playoff series win since 2015.
