The Bay Area champions take on the Broadway kids. That's what we'll see in the Eastern Conference finals of 2022.

After winning their respective second-round series, the Lightning and Rangers will face off in the conference championships.

Tampa Bay is making its third straight appearance in the conference finals, while New York is making its first appearance in the third round since 2015.

In that series, who was your opponent? The Lightning, who advanced to their second Stanley Cup Final by defeating the Rangers in seven games.

Despite being outplayed for the most part by both the Penguins and the Hurricanes, the Rangers were able to survive and win back-to-back Game 7s because to Shesterkin and their special teams.

That tactic isn't going to work in Tampa Bay's favour. This is a veteran team that clearly understands how to win, and if New York allows Tampa Bay to control the game

it will not be as fortunate as it was in the first two rounds.
