Tonight the Rangers square off in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals with the New Jersey Devils, and if all goes well, they will play in a third-consecutive seven-game series. John Tortorella claims that New York isn't tired, but history says otherwise.
As the below graphic shows, no team has ever won a series after winning the first two rounds in seven games. The Rangers needed seven games to oust the Ottawa Senators in the first round and seven more games to dispatch the Washington Capitals in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
That isn't the only trend going against the Blueshirts. No team has ever won rounds two and three in seven games.
So if the Rangers do advance, they will not only have beaten the Devils, but they also will have beaten the odds.
