Rangers win in overtime, stay alive for Game 5
Boston leads the best-of-seven series 3-1. Game 5 is Saturday afternoon at T.D. Garden.
Nathan Horton, Torey Krug and Tyler Seguin also scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves for the Bruins.
Horton’s power play goal put Boston up 1-0 4:39 into the second period. It was his fifth goal of the playoffs. King scored his third goal of the series 3:02 later.
Stepan’s unassisted goal 1:15 into the third tied the score at 2.
Seguin put Boston up 3-2 with his first goal of the playoffs at 8:06 of the third.
NOTES: Rangers center Brad Richards announced at Thursday’s morning skate he was a healthy scratch for Game 4. “I’m just disappointed,” Richards said. The New York center has been relegated to the fourth line since Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Washington Capitals. He has averaged 10:47 of ice time in the series against the Bruins. Richards vowed to “work harder and try my best to never let this happen again.” ... This is the 10th time the Rangers and the Bruins have met in a Stanley Cup playoff series. The Bruins have a 6-3 series edge, but Boston has never swept New York in a best-of-seven. The Bruins beat the Rangers 2-0 in a two-game semifinal series in 1927 due to aggregate goal differential. Two years later, the Bruins swept the Rangers 2-0 in the Stanley Cup final.
