Marc Staal scored a power-play goal 1 minute, 35 seconds into overtime after Brad Richards tied it in the dying seconds of regulation to lift the host New York Rangers to a stunning 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night. With goalie Henrik Lundqvist pulled for an extra attacker, Washington's Joel Ward took a four-minute penalty for high-sticking Carl Hagelin with 21.3 seconds left in the third period. Richards tied it on the first half of the power play with just 7.6 seconds to go, and Staal won it with a drive that appeared to deflect off a Washington player before beating goalie Braden Holtby.

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.

JUST MINUTES after the final buzzer sounded on Game 6, a 5-2 Flyers' victory at the Wells Fargo Center, the Rangers were already looking ahead to tonight's Game 7 at Madison Square Garden. There wasn't much use, they figured, in dwelling on their most lopsided loss of this first-round series. "It's playoffs. We're still a confident team," New York defenseman Marc Staal said. "We've played well all series long. That's not going to be an issue. We'll be ready to go. We'll have our 'A' game.

NEW YORK - Looking for his first goal in 111 career playoff games and trying to tie the score, hulking Flyers defenseman Hal Gill skated deep into the offensive zone and, with a lot of open net, fired wide midway through the second period Sunday afternoon. It would be the closest the Flyers came to drawing even. With Gill trying to get back down the ice, the New York Rangers went to the other end and took three shots, scoring on center Brad Richards' rebound from the side of the net en route to a 4-2 victory at Madison Square Garden.

THIRTY FOUR years ago, the NHL made the use of helmets mandatory for new players. Yesterday, hockey took a similarly giant leap toward protecting its greatest assets by making mandatory the use of half-shield facial visors. The NHL's competition committee, with the help of Flyers chairman Ed Snider and five players representing the NHL Players Association, met in Toronto to approve the grandfathering of visors. The rule change still needs to be approved by the league's Board of Governors with a vote, though that is expected to be a formality.
