Afternoon jam: Conference finals facts

Metropolitan Matchup: All 14 of the Rangers games this postseason have been decided by either one or two goals. From Elias: If that happens tonight against New Jersey, the Rangers would become the first team in NHL history to play 15 consecutive games in one playoff year settled by a margin of no more than two goals. Other 14-game streaks were the 1945 Red Wings, 1994 Devils, 1998 Stars and 2012 Capitals.

Kings of the Road: The Kings became the sixth team in NHL history to win eight consecutive road playoff games (L.A.’s streak dates back to last season). Tomorrow, the Kings can tie the all-time record of nine straight road playoff wins, held by the New York Islanders spanning the 1982 and 1983 playoffs.
