Defenseman Dan Girardi scored 3 minutes, 11 seconds into overtime to give the New York Rangers a stirring, 1-0 victory over the host New York Islanders on Saturday night in a game that felt every bit like a playoff matchup between the area rivals. Henrik Lundqvist and Islanders counterpart Evgeni Nabokov staged a classic goalie duel that seemed destined to go to a shootout, but Girardi finished off a rush by flipping a shot over Nabokov's shoulder for just his second goal of the season.

Jaromir Jagr scored twice on two-man power plays in a 42-second span, and Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves for his first NHL shutout as the New York Rangers blanked Florida last night, 4-0. Jagr scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season - all on the power play - on nearly identical plays late in the second period to help the Atlantic Division-leading Rangers tie Ottawa for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 10 points. Petr Prucha added his first NHL goal and fellow rookie Fedor Tyutin also scored for New York.

The Rangers, who lost Game 2 at home in overtime, lead the best-of-seven, first-round series two games to one. Lundqvist's biggest save came in the last minute when he robbed Kyle Turris on the doorstep with a quick pad stop.   Chara lifts Bruins Zdeno Chara scored the tiebreaking goal during four-on-four play with less than 2 minutes left, and the reigning Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins finally solved playoff rookie goalie Braden Holtby, beating the host Washington Capitals, 4-3, to take a two-games-to-one lead.

Marian Gaborik scored two goals and added an assist as the New York Rangers broke out of their funk last night with a 5-2 victory over visiting Phoenix. The Rangers netted two goals on five shots in the first period and two more on only six attempts in the second to chase goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. Gaborik did most of the damage. His first goal gave New York a 2-0 lead and his second - his 10th of the season - made it 4-0. In between, he set up Vinny Prospal for another goal. That was enough for the Rangers to snap their three-game losing streak that came on the heels of a seven-game winning run. Artem Anisimov and Enver Lisin also scored, while Henrik Lundqvist had 30 saves in goal.

Call it the Tortorella Tirade. The Rangers came out flat in the opening minute against the New Jersey Devils, and coach John Tortorella had seen more than enough. He burned his lone timeout 1:24 in and chewed out his club. The message got through, and visiting New York gutted out a 3-2 victory last night. "We didn't come out ready," captain Chris Drury said. "It was pretty obvious at the start of the game and he let us know. From that point on I thought we responded very well.

Henrik Lundqvist became the fifth NHL goalie to start a career with four 20-win seasons, and the host New York Rangers turned their struggling power play into a plus in a 4-0 victory over the slumping Pittsburgh Penguins last night. Lundqvist (20-11-3) made 27 saves for his first shutout of the season and 18th overall. "It is about time. I haven't even been close to a shutout," Lundqvist said. "Just going into the third without any goals felt pretty good to me. " He is the fourth Rangers goalie to post four consecutive 20-win seasons.

Miroslav Satan waited for Henrik Lundqvist to make the first move. After watching Lundqvist stay deep in the crease to stop Alexei Yashin's backhander on the first attempt in a shootout, Satan fired a wrist shot past the rookie to help the visiting New York Islanders beat the Rangers, 3-2, last night. "I just watched the goalie to see what he was going to do. I was just trying to focus on him," Satan said. "He stayed in, so I shot. " It was the Islanders' first win in the local rivalry in 11 games.

BILL MASON'S cellphone bill may be a bit higher this month than normal. That's because his son, Flyers goaltender Steve Mason, said he's needed a few lengthy phone calls to vent after a frustrating start to the season. Mason, 26, is off to a tough start. He doesn't have a win in five games and his save percentage is .878, tying him for 50th in the NHL. He has been in this position before - many times, in fact, in Columbus. This isn't his first time playing with a shoddy defense.

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.

NEW YORK - The New York Rangers face steep odds, but the Los Angeles Kings know more than anyone that coming back from a three-games-to-none deficit in a best-of-seven series is not impossible. If history prevails, it is next to impossible when it happens in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Kings will go for a sweep against the Rangers in Game 4 Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. A team leading the Stanley Cup Finals by three games to none has won the series 25 of 26 times since the best-of-seven format was instituted in 1939.

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.

The door to the penalty box swung open, and, half a rink away, Erik Gustafsson spied redemption. There was only open ice between him and Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, and fellow defenseman Braydon Coburn had carefully feathered him a pass. Gustafsson, questionably and unhappily penalized for high-sticking at 12 minutes, 11 seconds of the second period, corralled the bouncing puck and, after a few frenzied strides, easily flicked it past Lundqvist, his fellow Swede, as the big Wells Fargo Center unloosed a noisy, orange explosion.

By the midpoint of the first period Tuesday night, Steve Mason could have ripped off his goalie mask and dared the New York Rangers to shoot, and he would have caught the puck in his teeth with a smile. This was always going to be how the Flyers would survive to reach a Game 7, and here they are now after their 5-2 victory: one game in Madison Square Garden, one chance to win a playoff series they probably should have lost by now, carried there on Mason's broad and sturdy shoulders. That Game 6 score testifies to the Flyers' finest performance of the series, to the way they came at the Rangers in waves over the final 45 minutes Tuesday.

TWO PICTURES from a beat-down. First: The clock says there is 6:23 left in the second period. The Flyers are holding a 2-0 lead. They are killing a phantom penalty, a high stick on Erik Gustafsson. The crowd at the Wells Fargo Center is in high dudgeon, which is different than the normal dudgeon in that it is even more profane. Booing, howling - and here come the Rangers, two-on-one. Benoit Pouliot has the puck on his stick and a clear, clean shot. He fires from 23 feet, according to the score sheet.

FUNNY THING about Erik Gustafsson. For a professional hockey player who still is trying to get his career going, he sure seems to be in the right place at the right time quite often. Take last night in the middle of the second period. Gustafsson was sitting in the penalty box after a questionable high-sticking penalty and goaltender Steve Mason had just made a scintillating glove save on Benoit Pouliot. As the clock on his penalty clicked down, Gustafsson stood up and sprung out of the penalty box. As he did, Braydon Coburn flipped the puck out of the defensive zone.

NEW YORK - The puck squirted through Hal Gill's legs and Dominic Moore spun the Flyers' brute around like a New York City subway turnstile before beating Steve Mason on a breakaway. As the 18,006 inside Madison Square Garden furiously waved their white rally towels to celebrate the Rangers' three-goal, second-period lead, Gill skated toward the Flyers' bench while fingers waggled at him 90 miles away in Philadelphia. Really, though, it was Braydon Coburn's panicked pass - serving as the grenade in Gill's skates - that perfectly summed up the Flyers' maddening, 4-2 loss to the Rangers yesterday afternoon.
