After sun reflecting off the ice delayed the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Rangers and pinstriped goalie Henrik Lundqvist beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in snow and cold Sunday.

Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the New York Rangers used a four-goal second period to take the lead for good.

The temperature was 24.9 degrees Fahrenheit when the first puck dropped at 1:41 p.m. in front of a sellout crowd of 50,105.

Brad Marchand scored with 4:20 left in the first overtime and the Boston Bruins beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in the first playoff game in 40 years between the Original Six teams.
Marchand, Boston’s top goal scorer in the regular season, got his first of the post-season on a pass from Patrice Bergeron. Marchand had carried the puck up the right side, passed it to Bergeron and kept going toward the net. Bergeron passed across the slot and Marchand tipped it past goalie Henrik Lundqvist from the left side of the crease.
The Bruins carried the play throughout overtime. They applied constant pressure, but couldn’t score during a power play when Derek Dorsett was penalized for interference at 2:20 of overtime.

Scary moment: Marc Staal takes a puck to the face

New York is riding high on a three-game winning streak, but instead of being able to fully celebrate their good fortune and the improved play of their newest star, the Rangers are holding their breath as they wait for medical news regarding key defenceman Marc Staal.

Rick Nash broke a third-period tie and added an insurance goal in the Rangers’ 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. Any feelings of euphoria were greatly lessened because of concern regarding Staal, who appeared to be struck in the right eye by a deflected puck 5:45 into the third.

“I just looked at it. It’s scary,” said subdued Rangers coach John Tortorella, who hadn’t gotten an update on Staal’s condition. (Photos: Frank Franklin II/The Associated Press)

Life in the dying secondsThese two teams seem destined to be separated by some small thing, some fragment — a puck that bounces just right, a stick that catches just enough of a puck, a shot that is not quite blocked enough. It’s so close. Anything could matter.And in Game 5 of their second-round series, the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals extended their slow dance with a heart-pounding late goal by the Rangers to force overtime. And with only 1:35 gone in overtime and the Rangers on the power play, a Marc Staal drive from the point bounced its way through a crowd and past Braden Holtby for a 3-2 victory at Madison Square Garden that gave the Rangers a 3-2 lead in the series. Game 5 takes place Wednesday at the Verizon Center in Washington, and the Capitals will face elimination. (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)

Senators have history with Game 7: Rarely have truer words been written: “Not that this was the Senators’ chosen path, it is their fallback option,” columnist Wayne Scanlan wrote in the Ottawa Citizen. “And they may regret, dearly, that Game 7 was even necessary.”The Senators had a chance to complete a first-round upset of the top-seeded New York Rangers on Monday night, but allowed three goals in the second period to lose 3-2 at home. Ottawa will face New York in Game 7 on Thursday. They have never won a Game 7.
