Video — PHT Extra: Caps-Rangers, Bruins-Leafs Game 7 previews

May 13, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

Tonight promises to be a good one as a pair of do-or-die contests go in Boston and Washington.

The Leafs and Bruins will do battle at TD Garden, this after Toronto rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to force Game 7.

At Verizon, the Caps and Rangers will meet in a Game 7 for the second consecutive year — last postseason, the two met in the Eastern Conference semifinals with the Rangers winning, 2-1.

In advance of both games, Brough and I broke down all the storylines and keys to the games.

Have a look, won’t you?
