The Penguins and Rangers will meet in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday from the Consol Energy Center in Western Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately for Rangers fans, history isn’t on their side. New York is 0-4 all-time against Pittsburgh in the playoffs plus the team has never been able to win a series after facing a 3-1 deficit.

Most would believe playing at home in a Game 7 will benefit Pittsburgh and it should. There have been 149 Game 7’s in the NHL Playoffs and the home squad owns a 94-55 (63%) record.

While those angles favor the Penguins, there are some current trends that back the Rangers.

Overall, New York is 6-5 in Game 7’s while Pittsburgh is 13-6.

However, the Rangers have gone 6-1 in their last seven Game 7’s and that already includes a victory in a decisive battle this season.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has dropped its last two Game 7’s and one of them came at home.

Listed below are past games and trends to watch for Tuesday’s Game 7 between the Rangers and Penguins:
