Final score of the Rangers’ Game 6 against the Hurricanes: New York forces a Game 7 with a 5-2 win over Carolina.

The Hurricanes had not won an away game during the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs entering Game 6 against the Rangers on Saturday. That fact remains the same.

New York earned a 5-2 victory on Saturday to force a Game 7 in the second-round showdown against Carolina. The Rangers pulled Hurricanes goalie Antti Raanta from the game after he allowed two bad goals in the first and another to start the second.

Filip Chytil scored two goals, while Tyler Motte, Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin scored for New York, while Brady Skjei and Vincent Trocheck scored for Carolina. Igor Shesterkin was fantastic, making 37 saves in the win, as well as adding two assists, becoming the fifth goaltender in NHL history with two assists in a single playoff game.

The Hurricanes fall to 0-6 in road games this postseason, but head home to Raleigh for Monday night’s winner, where they have a 7-0 record at PNC Arena.

The two teams while playing in another Game 7 after both squads went the distance in their respective first round series. The Hurricanes defeated the Bruins in the first round in seven games, while the Rangers came back from a 3-1 series deficit to defeat the Penguins.

Rangers vs. Hurricanes results, highlights of game six.

End of 3rd period: Rangers 5, Hurricanes 2

10:37 p.m: Game over and the Rangers hang on for the win. Another contest in which they were outshot, but thanks to a couple of weak goals by Raanta to start and stellar play by Shesterkin, we’ll have a Game 7.

10:37 p.m: Sebastian Aho out for rouging so New York heads to another power play. They are 2 for 4 tonight.

10:26 p.m: A couple more penalties being called here. First, Miller is called for tripping and then Tony DeAngelo throws the puck on net after the whistle, which the Rangers don’t take lightly and results in an unsportsmanlike conduct call. 4-on-4 once again.

10:23 p.m: Another great glove save by Shesterkin on a spin attempt by Trocheck. A scuffle ensues after K’Andre Miller knocks Trocheck down from behind after his shot attempt. Both are called for a foul. It’s getting tense at MSG.

10:18 p.m.: GOAL! The Rangers take advantage of their brief 5-on-3 with a goal by Panarin. Kreider cuts toward the net, but leaves it in the slot. Panarin picks up, waits and beats Kochetkov five-hole. 5-2 Rangers lead with 12 minutes left.

10:14 p.m: And another penalty. Ian Cole is called for interference so it will be 4-on-3 for the Rangers for 55 seconds.

10:12 p.m: The play switches to 4-on-4 as Artemi Panarin is called for hooking.

10:09 p.m: Power play early in the third for the Rangers as Slavin is called for a double minor for high-sticking. Slavin was going for a puck in the air, missed and hit Kreider in the face. 4-minute power play for New York.

10:05 p.m: Third period arrived, Rangers are 20 minutes away from forcing a Game 7 on Monday.

End of the second period: Rangers 4, Hurricanes 2.

9:44 p.m: End of the 2nd, Rangers still hold a two goal lead. The Hurricanes stay close and control most of the game, but not by much. The Rangers have taken their chances and Shesterkin has been excellent.

9:40 p.m: The Hurricanes press in the offensive zone, but the Rangers are able to hold on for now. However, Shesterkin is whistled for interference after coming out of his crease to collide with Jarvis. It’s been all Carolina in these final minutes of the middle frame.

9:38 p.m: Mini breakaway by Chytil, but solid pad save by Kochetkov. Chytil looks for the hat trick.

9:37 p.m: The Rangers kill the Kreider penalty, but not without a dangerous chance for Carolina. Shesterkin is bailed out by the Rangers defense after falling to hold a shot that hit his glove. Less than five minutes left in the 2nd.

9:34 p.m: Right after Trocheck’s goal, Kreider is ejected for hooking. Carolina has a chance to cut the game to one goal.

9:33 p.m.: GOAL! Vincent Trocheck cleans up the garbage in front of the crease and the lead is down to two again. Trocheck sends the puck on net as he’s falling and the puck bounces off Lindgren and between Shesterkin’s legs.

9:32 p.m: Interesting note: Shesterkin has not only been stellar in the crease, but is also credited with two assists in the game. He has three this postseason.

9:28 p.m: Shesterkin, once again, makes big saves for the Rangers. Two jam attempts by Seth Jarvis, then a hit on the loose puck at the top of the crease by Sebastian Aho.

9:25 p.m: Another great chance for the Rangers, but Kochetkov stands strong in the crease. A bad turnover by the Canes behind their own net leads to a chance for Ryan Lindgren to score on Kochetkov, but no dice this time.

9:22 p.m.: GOAL! It’s Chytil again. He comes out from the corner and sends a backhand that whistles past Kochetkov’s shoulder. The lead is back to three for New York.

9:16 p.m.: GOAL! Skjei puts the Canes on the board. Shesterkin never saw the shot from the top of the slot coming, Hurricanes cut the lead to 3-1.

9:12 p.m.: GOAL! Filip Chytil triggers a wicked wrister off the top of Raanta’s glove to make it 3-0. That’s the end of the night for Raanta, as Pyotr Kochetkov comes in. Chytil had just missed on a 2-on-1 with Lafreniere, but would not be denied the second time.

9:09 p.m: The puck has dropped for the second period.

End of first period: Rangers 2, Hurricanes 0.

8:50 p.m: End of period, 2-0 Rangers. But make no mistake, the Hurricanes had the better chances. Shesterkin is the only reason they haven’t given up a goal yet, while Raanta’s poor play at the other end is the reason they have the lead.

8:42 p.m: Momentum is on the Hurricanes’ side. First it’s Nino Neiderreiter all alone in front, but Shesterkin with the five-hole save. Then it’s Jordan Martinook trying to block a shot by the Rangers goalie, but there’s nothing for Carolina to do so far.

8:40 p.m: Penalty is overturned. The power play continues to struggle for the Hurricanes.

8:37 p.m: The Hurricanes get a power play when Jacob Trouba is whistled for tripping. Carolina has just one power play goal in the series, which came in Game 5.

8:28 p.m.: GOAL! Mike Zibanejad doubles the Rangers’ lead. He walks around Brady Skjei and beats Raanta five-hole on the rush, his fourth goal in as many games. Another weak goal allowed by the Carolina goalie. 2-0 Rangers with less than 10 minutes left in Game 6.

8:26 p.m: The first power play of the night goes to the Rangers. Brendan Smith is called for a high hit after his stick goes up in Alexis Lafreniere’s face.

8:21 p.m: Right after Motte’s goal, Andrew Copp has a chance, cutting towards the front of the net, missing high but the shot hits Jaccob Slavin and falls into the crease. Carolina was able to clear the puck, but plenty of action through the first eight minutes.

8:20 p.m.: GOAL! Moments after Aho’s breakaway chance, Tyler Motte goes down on the rush and gets a shot to go just past Raanta’s armpit. One that the Hurricanes goalie would definitely want back, but the Rangers capitalize first.

8:19 p.m: Grade-A’s first chance is a breakaway by Sebastian Aho. He arrives alone, but is saved by Shesterkin’s blocker.

8:11 p.m: Game 6 is underway!
