The Rangers, 14/1 to win the Stanley Cup, also had three straight comeback wins to turn the series around, winning 4-3 in overtime of Game 7 through Artemi Panarin on the powerplay.

It was the fourth time in their history that they had forced a Game 7 after trailing 3-1 in a series.

Hurricanes up next for Rangers

New York, the second seed from the Metropolitan Division (52-25-6) will face the first-placed Carolina Hurricanes (54-20-8) in the Second Round, a series they are 17/10 to win.

In the first-round series, their first progression since 2017, Rangers defenceman Adam Fox (10 points; three goals, seven assists) became the fourth blue-liner in NHL history to register at least one point in all seven games of a series.

He is also the first skater in Rangers' history to accomplish that feat.
