Final, Rangers 4, Bruins 3 (shootout)

End game, Rangers 4-3 To recap: Seguin, no. Gaborik, no. Bergeron, no. Nash, yes. Marchand, yes. Richards, no. Krejci, no. Callahan, yes. Rangers win in the shootout. Lackluster ending to what turned out to be an exciting final period.

End of overtime, 3-3 We’re headed to a shootout. No score in overtime. Amazing that the Bruins were able to score twice in the last 91 seconds. Both scores came with the goalie pulled.

0:42 3rd period, 3-3 Apparently they can. The Garden is LOUD after the Bruins improbably came back from a 3-0 deficit in the third period to tie the game with 42 seconds remaining. Marchand got the short-side goal. Time for extra hockey.


1:31 3rd period, Rangers 3-2 Well, the Bruins have 91 more seconds to tie this game up. Can they do it? They got within one on a Horton goal.

11:16 3rd period, Rangers 3-1 Nope, that was not a power play goal. Of course. Just after the power play expired, Krejci puts home a rebound off of Lundqvist to give Boston its first goal of the game. Krejci was assisted by Lucic and Seidenberg.

13:17 3rd period, Rangers 3-0 Nash for hooking.

17:53 3rd period, Rangers 3-0 So much for that. Just 20 seconds after the power play was over, the Rangers’ Anton Stralman put the puck on Tuukka Rask in net. It hit Rask and dribbled in behind him. Goal was unassisted. This hasn’t exactly been Rask’s finest game.

18:13 3rd period, Rangers 2-0 The Bruins managed to kill both penalties to keep them at a two-goal deficit at the start of the third period.

0:14 2nd period, Rangers 2-0 Bergeron just had a good chance on a short handed breakaway, but couldn’t put it away. Instead, the Bruins end up with a penalty. Marchand goes off, giving the Rangers a five-on-three. Not what Boston needs right now.

0:57 2nd period, Rangers 2-0 Lucic just sent to the box for high sticking on Ryan McDonagh.


11:29 2nd period, Rangers 2-0 The Bruins do get a chance to get that one back with a penalty to Marc Staal. Two minutes for interference.

11:43 2nd period, Rangers 2-0 The Rangers’ Derek Stepan managed to intercept a Bruins pass by Lucic and turn it around, knocking one past Rask for their second goal of the game. It was unassisted.

12:24 2nd period, Rangers 1-0 The Bruins have had some serious chances over the last couple of minutes, including the power play, but they haven’t been able to find the back of the net yet.

15:50 2nd period, Rangers 1-0 Here’s a chance for the Bruins to get on the board. The Rangers were just called for too many men on the ice. Power play, B’s.

End of the 1st, Rangers 1-0 The Bruins still lead in shots with 11 to the Rangers’ 8. But the Rangers lead where it counts, having gotten their goal on an excellent decision by Nash to pass when he could have taken the shot. Paid off.

5:13 1st period, Rangers 1-0 McQuaid just got called for the penalty. Two minutes for roughing. Rangers didn’t score on their first power play of the game.

9:23 1st period, Rangers 1-0 And now the Rangers have. Rick Nash managed to just push the puck over toward Carl Hagelin as Nash was essentially down on the ice in front of the goal. Hagelin put it home. The second assist went to Dan Girardi.

11:18 1st period, 0-0 The Bruins are leading in shots, 8-2, but neither team has been able to break through as of yet.


Pregame It’s almost time to go here at the Garden as the Bruins take on the Rangers. Could be a close one. The B’s and Rangers have been separated by one goal in 18 of their last 23 meetings. Six of those have been 1-0 games.
