All done on Broadway. Bruins lose second straight.

16:11 3d period: Rangers 4-3
Joe Corvo takes puck in cheek. Looks OK.

13:45 3d period: Rangers 4-3
Delay of game on Stu Bickel. Critical PP.

12:21 3d period: Rangers 4-3
Derek Stepan snipes high glove on Tim Thomas. Heck of a shot. But Thomas makes that save when he’s on. Easy entry for Rangers. Killer goal.

11:42 3d period: 3-3
David Krejci takes a dish from Milan Lucic and hits the back of the net. Good speed on rush for Tyler Seguin to initiate the play. Seguin drives to net to create seam. Lucic pass off Dan Girardi’s stick.

10:05 3d period: Rangers 3-2
Derek Stepan with a great chance in front. Wide right. As expected, Rangers pushing. Bruins running out of jump.

6:43 3d period: Rangers 3-2
Brad Marchand just misses on backhand.

3:14 3d period: Rangers 3-2
Marian Gaborik, foiled by Tim Thomas on first take, buries his second chance. Dennis Seidenberg caught pinching up ice. Then was running around at other end.

20:00 2d period: 2-2
Dominant second for Bruins. Wearing out ice in New York zone. Unlucky not to get goal. Bruins must be wary of Rangers pushback in third. Rangers awful in second.

13:58 2d period: 2-2
Bruins with 21-10 shot advantage. Controlling pace.

11:50 2d period: 2-2
Gregory Campbell, on second whack, hits right post.

9:39 2d period: 2-2
Too many men on Rangers. Fortunate for Bruins. NYR had them on ropes.

9:17 2d period: 2-2
Dan Girardi smokes Milan Lucic along boards. Wicked thump.

1:40 2d period: 2-2
Jordan Caron picks off Dan Girardi pass. Slaps one through Girardi screen and past Henrik Lundqvist. Two picks by Caron lead to two goals. Lundqvist looks mortal, though Caron’s shot might have ticked off Girardi.

20:00 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Twenty minutes finally in books. Bruins with some pushback.

18:30 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Brad Marchand with a backhand off the bar. Good dangle by Marchand. Post, back of Henrik Lundqvist’s right leg, post.

17:07 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Period over. Glass cracked behind Henrik Lundqvist. Teams sent to room.

15:38 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Gregory Campbell vs. Stu Bickel. Fight away from puck. Even scrap.

7:59 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Off the draw, Milan Lucic vs. Brandon Prust. Lucic ends the fight with some nasty lefts in front of the Boston bench. Round 2 goes to Lucic (Prust had won previous scrap).

7:57 1st period: Rangers 2-1
Excellent stick by Jordan Caron leads to chance in front. Benoit Pouliot buries the shot. Great forechecking by Caron and Chris Kelly on Anton Stralman to force giveaway.

7:04 1st period: Rangers 2-0
Rangers putting foot down. Bruins dreadful with puck management in own end.

6:15 1st period: Rangers 2-0
Rangers get another. Looked like Brandon Dubinsky got a piece of it. Fling out front by Carl Hagelin. Dubinsky gets to net before Gregory Campbell. Might have ticked off Greg Zanon before beating Tim Thomas. Timeout Bruins.

5:05 1st period: Rangers 1-0
Anton Stralman with the long-distance goal through traffic. Bruins had killed off Zdeno Chara penalty but couldn’t clear zone.

2:30 1st period: 0-0
Lane MacDermid vs. Mike Rupp. Welcome to the NHL, Lane. Takes some big rights from Rupp, but hangs in and scores the takedown.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Mike Mottau is the healthy scratch. Ryan Callahan out.
