After Wednesday’s first Game 5 of the second round of Stanley Cup Playoffs, two more follow Thursday as the Rangers and Hurricanes look to break a tied series. Additionally, there’s more Battle of Alberta action as the Oilers look to finish off the Flames, who hope to stave off elimination.

Calgary was able to climb back into Game 4 against Edmonton after going down 3-0, but Edmonton scored two unanswered goals at the end of the game to bring their series lead to three games to one.

Meanwhile, the Rangers have won two straight games against the Hurricanes, holding Carolina to just one goal in each of the last two contests. The Hurricanes will look to bring their offense back to life against the sure-fire Vezina winner in Igor Shesterkin.
