Today in Hockey History: The Rangers Win Their 1st Game 7 in Franchise History

May 1, 1992: After losing 5-3 to the Devils in game 6 the Rangers returned to Madison Square Garden to win their first game 7 in franchise history.

The first round of the 1992 NHL playoffs was an NHL fan’s dream, with 6 of the 8 opening round matchups going a full 7 games.

As the 1992 Presidents’ Trophy winners, the New York Rangers were the heavy favorite to beat the New Jersey Devils in their Patrick Division Semi-Final series.

But behind the strong play of Peter Stastny, Claude Lemieux, and veteran goaltender Chris Terreri (rookie netminder Martin Brodeur only saw 32 minutes of action in the series), the Devils won game 6 to force game 7 and push the Rangers to their limit.

The Rangers veterans Mark Messier, Mike Gartner, and Brian Leetch did most of the heavy lifting in the series, and thanks to Adam Graves’s heroic 4-point game 7 performance the Rangers won their first game 7 in franchise history against their division rival.
