Ice hockey – NHL: New York equalizes, Edmonton gets closer to the final

If Tampa Bay has already clinched its ticket to the NHL Eastern Conference Finals, the suspense remains in the second half, where the New York Rangers came back to 2-2 in their series against Carolina, winning 4-1 at home on Tuesday. The New Yorkers led 3-0 after a good half hour, thanks to Frank Vatrano, Adam Fox and Mika Zibanejad, then the Hurricanes closed the gap in the 57th by Teuvo Teravainen, but less than five minutes later, Andrew Copp sealed the victory for the Big Apple players. The series will now return to North Carolina, where the Hurricanes will try to preserve their home invincibility in these 2022 play-offs (six wins).

Crazy game in Edmonton

The Oilers started the game in the best possible way by leading 3-0 at the end of the first period thanks to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman and Evander Kane, the leading scorer in these play-offs. But Elias Lindholm, Mikael Backlund and Rasmus Andersson equalized between the 30th and 51st minutes (3-3) to restore hope to the Flames. Flames extinguished in the last five minutes of the match by new goals signed Nugent-Hopkins and Kane. The series returns to Calgary on Thursday.
