KUCHEROV'S OT GOAL LIFTS LIGHTNING OVER RANGERS IN WILD GAME 3

Dan Boyle tied the game with 1:56 remaining in regulation, but Nikita Kucherov scored at 3:33 of overtime to end a see-saw affair and give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 2-1 series lead against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Final.

* Kucherov (1-1—2) scored his third playoff game-winning goal and second in overtime. In the second round, he had the winner in each of the first two games at the Montreal Canadiens, including a goal at 2:06 of double-overtime in Game 1.

* Kucherov is the only player with multiple overtime goals in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Martin St. Louis is the only other player in Lightning history with multiple overtime goals in one playoff year; he scored them when Tampa Bay won its only Stanley Cup in 2004 (Game 5 of EQF vs. the New York Islanders and Game 6 of Stanley Cup Final at the Calgary Flames).

Stars have shined and unlikely overtime heroes have emerged through two rounds totaling 69 games, including three Game 7s, during the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning are the final four teams standing. They still have a chance to win the Stanley Cup, which means their players  have a chance to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player of the playoffs.

STEPAN'S OT GOAL LIFTS RANGERS INTO EASTERN CONFERENCE FINAL

Derek Stepan scored at 11:24 of overtime and Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves to power the New York Rangers past the Washington Capitals and into the Eastern Conference Final for the second straight year and third time in the past four seasons.

* The Rangers improved to 9-5 all-time in Game 7s, including a 7-0 record at home (all since 1992). They are the only team in League history to play at least four Game 7s at home and win each of them.

* Kevin Hayes tied the score at 1-1 with his power-play goal at 6:22 of the second period. The Elias Sports Bureau says the Rangers overcame a deficit (of any margin) to win a Game 7 for the first time in franchise history.

* Since losing to the Capitals in seven games in the 2009 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, the Rangers have won six straight Game 7s. That matches the NHL record set by the Detroit Red Wings from 1949-64 and equaled by the Boston Bruins from 1983-94.

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
