Bruins-Rangers summary

Star of the Game: Patrice Bergeron was at it again. With the score tied, 2-2, Bergeron planted himself in front of the net screening Johnny Boychuk’s wrister with 12:08 left in the second period. Then, only 26 seconds into the third period, just he did in overtime on Thursday, Bergeron broke down the right wing and fired the puck in front to a breaking Brad Marchand, who redirected it by Henrik Lundqvist.

Runner-up: Bruins’ rookie defender Torey Krug continued to turn heads with his skating ability and his penchant for carrying the puck long distances. Krug opened the scoring with a slap shot from the left side for a 1-0 lead. He added an assist on the second goal, again shooting the puck and Brad Campbell got the rebound and back-handed it over Lundqvist.

Stat of the Game: Tyler Seguin’s struggles continued as he played only 11:10 last night.

Stat of the Game II: The fact that the Bruins had more hits 36 to 33 wasn’t surprising, but the fact that they “out-hit” the Rangers 27 to 13 after the first period was.

Quotes: “It’s a good challenge, obviously. I know I can’t let in any lead goals most nights because he is who he is,” said Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask when asked about comparisons to Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

“Listen, we don’t want to lose two games here. No one does. But there’s no give in the team. There will be no give in this team. Again, we need to go win a game. Not look anywhere else, just try to win our first home game this series,” said Rangers coach John Tortorella.

“We have to look at it that way; we’ve done it before. But I think we are playing a better team now so it’s going to be tough to do it. They’re a solid team and you can’t give them too much,” said Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
