The New York Rangers defeated the Boston Bruins by the score of 4-3 in overtime, tonight. The Bruins lead the series 3-1. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports. ...obviously coming back from 0-3 deficit is a near impossible task, but when you see what happened to Rask on the Hagelin goal, you have to wonder if there's a little magic going on here for the Rangers. ...it only took three games, one and a half periods and a Rask tumble, but the Rangers finally remembered how you have to play to win in the playoffs. While it was truly baffling to see the Rangers, again, begin the game with zero emotion, I loved the desperation in the third period and overtime. ...so wait, if you don't bury Kreider on the fourth line, he actually plays well? Amazing how that happens. ...i've been killing Nash for not scoring in the playoffs, but he was in full beast mode tonight. Easily his best game of the playoffs. ...they didn't play much, but I absolutely loved what the fourth line brought to the table tonight. Forechecking, hitting and basically making the Bruins fourth line look like little ******* as they backed down from every invitation to dance. ...who knew the answer to the Rangers power play woes was Brian Boyle? ...seriously, is there anything sweeter than watching Stepan pick Chara's pocket like that? ...wait, Hamrlik ended up with an assist and was a +1? I don't even remember him being on the ice once after that delay of game penalty. ...Callahan has had a very uncharacteristically low key series, but his seven hits tonight reminded us how important he is to this team. ...i guess Richads should get used to view from the press box. Although, with Zuccarello being as equally non-existent in this series, I wouldn't mind seeing the Rangers alternate captain taking the Hobbit's spot on the third line. Having said that, don't ever mess with success. ...Lundqvist hasn't been bad in the series, but man he's given up some bad goals. Guess I can't complain too much when the Rangers would scheduling exit interviews tomorrow instead of boarding a flight to Boston without him. ...Hits - Rangers: 40, Bruins: 24. Not always about the team with the most skill folks, it's about the team who wants it most. ...thought Rask was shaky at best tonight, so as a Rangers fan you have to hope his confidence has been rattled and it carries over to Game 5. ...the Rangers march towards history continues Saturday in Boston at 5:30pm.
