BOSTON, M.A. (CBSNewYork) — The New York Rangers did what was needed to stay alive and stave off a four-game sweep. Now, they must keep the momentum going when they hit the ice for Game 5 at the TD Garden in Boston on Saturday.
Forward Brian Boyle scored the game-tying goal in Game 4 that eventually forced overtime. All series, Boyle has been in a confident mood and thinks the series is far from over.
“We were down three, but had yet to play a fourth. It wasn’t over yet, and the same holds true now. It’s not over,” Boyle stated on the Rangers’ official Twitter page.
Winger Chris Kreider went on to score the overtime-winner that forced Game 5. Kreider and the Rangers finished Game 4 strongly, but they’ve been troubled by poor starts throughout the season and into the playoffs. That’s something that needs to change in the Rangers have any chance of extending the series to a sixth game in New York.
“Our start is critical,” defenseman John Moore said before Game 5. “We need to have a better start, take them out of their game, take their crowd out of it.”
“I choose to have a sense of humor,” Rask said about his errors last game at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers are hoping they’ll put pressure on Rask right away, try to get any early foothold in Game 5 and perhaps force Game 6 on their home ice.
