Lundqvist allowed a goal on the Bruins' first shot, a tip-in by Brett Connolly 40 seconds into the game, then stopped 38 consecutive shots before Connolly scored again with 1:57 left. He was at his best in the second period, when he stopped all 19 shots.
The Rangers tied the game 1-1 on Viktor Stalberg's goal at 16:27 of the second period, and J.T. Miller scored less than three minutes later to put New York ahead to stay. Rick Nash had a power-play goal at 5:21 of the third period that turned out to be the game-winner.
