Rangers win in overtime to stay alive in NHL Playoff series against the Bruins.
The New York Rangers stayed alive in the playoffs after an overtime victory over fierce rivals Boston got them their first victory of the series, but still find themselves 1-3 down.
The Bruins took a quick 2-0 lead, through Horton and Krug, the latter producing a stunning long range effort that could be a candidate for goal of the playoffs.
However late in the first period the Rangers pulled one back, thanks to a weak effort from Hagelin that trickled it’s way into the net.
The Rangers then drew level through another soft goal, this time from Stepan, who steered the puck in from behind the net.
The Bruins once again took the lead, Seguin turning the loose puck home, to take a third period lead.
With a defeat eliminating the Rangers from the playoffs, they had to rally late to stay in the game.
Thankfully the fans prayers were answered as Brian Boyle scored on the power play to tie the game up and force overtime.
From there it was all New York, and a fine deft finish from Chris Kreider saw Madison Square Garden erupt as the Rangers clung onto their Playoff lives.
The task is still a massive one, as the series moves back to Boston on Saturday evening, where Boston will be looking to end the match up and move onto the Eastern Conference finals.
