The New York Rangers dramatic come-from-behind win over the Pittsburgh Penguins set the stage for the blue shirts to face the Metropolitan Division Champion Carolina Hurricanes in the second round. 

The second-round series should have plenty of intrigue considering the Hurricanes have a number of former Blue Shirts on their roster this season. Tony DeAngelo, Brady Skjei and Derek Stepan are just a few of the names that once donned New York Rangers sweaters, but now play in Carolina. 

The Series is also a matchup between the two top teams in the Metro, with the Rangers finished just behind the Hurricanes in the Division. The two teams met four times and New York won just one game this season against the Hurricanes, which came on March 20 in a 2-0 win in Carolina. 

The Rangers are 86-57-7-2 all-time against the Hurricanes. Below is the full schedule for the second-round matchup.
