PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Derick Brassard scored twice, including New York's first power-play goal in 10 games, and the Rangers avoided elimination with a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Friday night.

Brassard ended New York's 0-for-36 slide with the man advantage, beating Marc-Andre Fleury late in the first period. Ryan McDonagh added another power-play goal in the second to help the Rangers force Game 6 in New York on Sunday.

Chris Kreider and Kevin Klein also scored, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots.

Evgeni Malkin had his third goal of the series for Pittsburgh. Fleury made 30 saves.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
