The Florida Panthers are on the verge of going back to the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight year and third time in franchise history after beating the New York Rangers 3-2 on Thursday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.  The Panthers can end the series Saturday in Florida. If a seventh game is necessary, it will be at Madison Square Garden, where the Panthers have won twice in this series.  This is the first time the Rangers have faced elimination in the playoffs this season.
