  • Peel and Rooney have been paired together the entire postseason. They worked TBL/MTL Game 2, SJ/LAK Game 3, COL/MIN Game 4, PIT/CBJ Game 5, NYR/PHI Game 7 in Round 1. In the second round, they’ve covered LA/ANA Game 1 and BOS/MTL Game 3.
  • Of course, just like in Game 4, any Rangers advantage due to penalty calls will be limited by their lack of success on the power play.
