The surging New York Rangers have been running away with the Eastern Conference and now they are picking up points even when they aren't playing up to the high standard they have set. "We're playing our third game in two-and-a-half days, and they're not all going to be pretty," Rangers coach John Tortorella said after the Rangers outlasted the Boston Bruins, 4-3, Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik both scored tiebreaking goals in the third period, and the Rangers held on after losing in overtime at Tampa Bay on Friday.

Brad Richards scored the go-ahead goal and Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists as the top-seeded New York Rangers staved off elimination with a 3-2 victory against Senators on Monday night in Ottawa. The series heads back to New York Thursday night for the first Game 7 in any sport at Madison Square Garden in 17 years. Not even the return of Daniel Alfredsson, who missed three games with a concussion, in front of the fired-up home crowd at Scotiabank Place could help the eighth-seeded Senators complete the upset.

The Rick Nash saga seems to be going down to the wire. The Columbus Blue Jackets' front office Sunday mulled over offers for the elite power winger, who still could be dealt by Monday's 3 p.m. deadline. There also is the strong possibility that the Blue Jackets will hold out in the hope of getting better offers at the June entry draft. Columbus was said to be adamant about obtaining players who the Rangers deemed untouchable: center Derek Stepan or No. 1 prospect Chris Kreider, a power forward at Boston College, as well as defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto.

About three hours after asking for more respect from NHL officials, Washington's Alex Ovechkin was called for two penalties within seconds of each other, leading to a pair of goals that put the New York Rangers ahead for good Sunday in a 4-1 win over the host Capitals. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan took advantage of Ovechkin's miscues to give New York a two-goal lead in the second period. Derek Stepan and Brad Richards also scored, and Martin Biron made 28 saves for the Rangers. Ovechkin said "some refs don't like some personalities on our team" and are too quick to call a penalty when they hear a complaint.

NEW YORK - The King wasn't going to let the Kings get crowned at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. "We definitely didn't want to see the Cup come out on our ice," New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist said after the Game 4 escape. "Just the thought of it makes me sick. " Despite being badly outplayed in Game 4, the New York Rangers stole a victory and earned the right to play in Los Angeles on Friday night. "I've never been so happy to have a long flight and a time change," defenseman Dan Girardi said after the Rangers avoided elimination with a 2-1 win over the Kings at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK - Shown on the Madison Square Garden scoreboard during first-period stoppages Wednesday night, former New York Ranger Mark Messier, actor Michael J. Fox, and tennis legend John McEnroe each held up four fingers, apparently their way of saying that the Blueshirts had that many more Stanley Cup playoff victories in them. A couple of hours later, they needed only three. The Rangers delayed their funeral for another time, getting outstanding goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist en route to a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings, who have a three-games-to-one lead in the Finals.

For Flyers fans, it is their worst nightmare: a Stanley Cup Final matching the hated New York Rangers against a Los Angeles Kings team that has several key players who used to play for the Orange and Black. The Rangers, who eliminated the Flyers in seven opening-round games, will be aiming for their first title since 1994, while the Kings will be trying to capture their second championship in three years. The Big Market Series marks just the third time the teams are meeting in the playoffs, and the first time since 1981.

NEW YORK - The New York Rangers, a team that looked beatable before outlasting the Flyers in the opening round, continued their improbable journey Thursday night at frenzied Madison Square Garden. The Blueshirts, sparked by Dominic Moore's goal and Henrik Lundqvist's goaltending, defeated the Montreal Canadiens, 1-0, and won the Eastern Conference finals, four games to two. The victory sends New York to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since Mark Messier and Co. won the crown in 1994, ending the Rangers' 54-year drought.

NEW YORK - Steve Mason allowed two second-period goals Wednesday night, and it may have been his best showing in the Flyers' first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers. And that is saying something. The Flyers goalie followed up a spectacular Game 6 with a sensational performance in Game 7, but his teammates couldn't quite follow his lead. The team's season ended in a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. "Mace played unbelievably to keep us in the game," Flyers captain Claude Giroux said.

Flyers coach Craig Berube used the home-ice advantage for favorable matchups Tuesday night, and the best consisted of his third line against the Rangers' most potent line in their playoff series. The defensive play of center Sean Couturier and wingers Matt Read and Jason Akeson against a Rangers line that had been giving them fits was one reason the Flyers are heading to Wednesday's deciding Game 7 at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers' line of center Derek Stepan and wingers Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis was silenced as the Flyers scored a 5-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers' inability to stop the Rangers line of Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, and Rick Nash has been a story line throughout their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series. It definitely continued during the 4-1 loss to New York on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Rangers have regained home-ice advantage and take a two-games-to-one lead into Game 4 Friday in Philadelphia. The trio has been difficult for the Flyers to contain, at even-strength and on the power play. Stepan scored the first goal Tuesday, less than four minutes into the game, though it came on a gift from goalie Ray Emery.

The Rangers outshot the Flyers, 23-14, in the first two periods before turning truly dominant by having a 13-1 shot advantage in the third period, when they scored three goals.

NEW YORK - For the Flyers, the magnitude of the games has changed, but not the results at Madison Square Garden. It continues to be their Garden of Evil. They managed just 15 shots and dropped their ninth straight at the World's Most Famous Arena, opening the playoffs with a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Brad Richards and Derek Stepan scored power-play goals 47 seconds apart in the third period, snapping a 1-1 tie and keying the Rangers' hard-earned win. The Rangers got a four-minute power play because of a double minor against rookie winger Jason Akeson, who played just one regular-season game and was making his NHL playoff debut.
