    The New York Rangers celebrate the overtime goal by Chris Kreider against the Boston Bruins Thursday in New York.
    NEW YORK — Chris Kreider steered in a pass from Rick Nash 7:03 into overtime, and the New York Rangers stayed alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

    New York, which erased 2-0 and 3-2 deficits in the critical Game 4 matchup in the Eastern Conference semifinals, still trails the series 3-1.

    The Rangers will need to win again on Saturday in Boston to force a Game 6 back in Madison Square Garden.

    The Rangers, who were outshot 40-32, won a faceoff deep in their zone, and Nash rushed the puck up ice. He stopped above the right circle and fed a hard pass in front that Kreider skated into and tipped past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask for his first goal of the playoffs.



    Pens look to close out Sens

    PITTSBURGH — Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson isn’t sure his team can win three straight games against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    The Penguins, though, don’t consider that admission Alfredsson’s way of waving the white flag. Pittsburgh took a 3-1 lead 7-3 win on Wednesday.

    The Penguins are in command heading into Game 5 tonight.
