The 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs presented by GEICO continue with the Eastern Conference Final tonight on ESPN, featuring the New York Rangers at Tampa Bay Lightning beginning at 8 p.m. ET. Each Eastern Conference game will be available on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+. In addition, a special alternate presentation of the game – Ice Cast – will give fans a view of the game from above the ice.

ESPN’s NHL-focused studio show, The Point, airs daily on ESPN and ESPN+. New episodes of In The Crease stream exclusively on ESPN+ each game day, following the last game of the day, with in-depth analysis, interviews, highlights and more from all the day’s NHL game action.

The two-time defending champion Lightning look to become the fourth different NHL franchise to three-peat and first since the Islanders from 1980-83. The Lightning vs. Rangers series features a matchup between two of the top goaltenders in the NHL – Andrei Vasilevskiy and Igor Shesterkin.

The New York Rangers secured the fourth and final spot in the 2022 Conference Finals thanks to a six-goal Game 7. The fourth team in Stanley Cup Playoffs history to win multiple series in one postseason after facing a multi-game deficit in each. The Rangers last advanced to the Conference Finals in 2015, where the Tampa Bay Lightning won the series with a Game 7 shutout win.

The commentator and telecast details for each game are detailed below. Commentator assignments and coverage details for ESPN’s games beyond Game 5 – if necessary – will be announced in the coming days. All Stanley Cup Playoff games will also be available for replay on ESPN+.
