NEW YORK — After Game 1 of his team’s series against the Bruins, Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was inordinately hard on himself for allowing Brad Marchand’s overtime goal.

On Tuesday night, in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden, Lundqvist did everything in his power to keep his teammates in the game. He may as well have donned a cape with an ‘S’ on his chest, that’s how exceptionally he performed. But once again, it wasn’t enough in a 2-1 loss.
Coach John Tortorella said Lundqvist gave them every opportunity to win it. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
