Final: Rangers 1, Bruins 0

All done at the Garden, Rangers, 1-0. Varsity performance by NY.

19:00 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Timeout Bruins. Third line should be on the ice, not the first.

17:31 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Henrik Lundqvist fumbles for a Mark Recchi shot. Bruins have jacked up the hunger. We’ll see if there’s enough time left for the rally.

14:30 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Relentless shift by the third line. Tyler Seguin competing.

5:35 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Milan Lucic off for slashing in offensive zone. Two stupid penalties by Lucic.

5:09 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Sharp glove save by Henrik Lundqvist on a David Krejci snapper.


2:22 3d period: Rangers 1-0
Sneaky wrister by Rich Peverley. Henrik Lundqvist with the glove save. Lundqivst rarely challenged today.

20:00 2d period: Rangers 1-0
Rangers continue to play near-perfect road game. A little anger from the Bruins late in the second.

17:04 2d period: Rangers 1-0
Henrik Lundqvist shaken up after Patrice Bergeron plows into him on a shorthanded chance. Not much Bergeron could do to avoid Lundvqist.

16:30 2d period: Rangers 1-0
Milan Lucic doesn’t care for a hard Dan Girardi hit. Goes after Girardi with a few whacks. Lucic called for slashing. Bad penalty by Lucic.

Marian Gaborik off for boarding Brad Marchand. First PP for the Bruins.

9:58 2d period: Rangers 1-0

Bruins still without a shot on goal in the second.

5:40 2d period: Rangers 1-0
Shawn Thornton inquires with Brandon Prust. Prust doesn’t accept.

1:07 2d period: Rangers 1-0
Hooking on Mark Recchi. A little iffy.

20:00 1st period: Rangers 1-0
Rangers playing big-boy hockey today. Bruins a step behind and not as physical.

14:35 1st period: Rangers 1-0
Good shift by the third line. Couple sniffs down low.


12:43 1st period: Rangers 1-0
Rangers all over Bruins. Heavy, heavy forecheck. Winning all the races. As noted before, not an ideal first-round matchup.

8:46 1st period: Rangers 1-0
Tyler Seguin off for interference. First PP of the day.

6:39 1st period: Rangers 1-0
After an offensive-zone faceoff win, Michael Sauer with the point shot off traffic and in. Claude Julien steamed about missed offside call on previous shift. Goal credited to Derek Stepan.

6:36 1st period: 0-0
Tight-checking game so far. Have to think the Bruins would rather face the Canadiens than the Rangers. Blueshirts big and built for playoff-style hockey. Not many heavier forwards on the same line as Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan.

2:44 1st period: 0-0
Gregory Campbell vs. Sean Avery. The lightweights square off at center ice. Not much action save for a late punch by Avery. Avery to the room instead of the penalty box for some reason.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
Daniel Paille, Steven Kampfer, and Shane Hnidy are the healthy scratches.
