Clutterbuck's late goal

NYI@NYR: Clutterbuck breaks the tie late in the 3rd

3/6/1: Cal Clutterbuck beats Antti Raanta by shooting the puck over his right shoulder to break the tie and give the Islanders a late 5-4 lead

  • 00:53 •

NEW YORK -- A wild first period featuring seven goals. A game-tying goal with less than 10 minutes remaining. A game-winning goal with 88 seconds left.

Yeah, a New York-New York first-round series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs would be just fine.

It's on pace to happen, but who would have home-ice advantage? The New York Islanders put even more doubt into that Sunday with a 6-4 win at Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist will not dress for the game against the New York Islanders at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (MSG+2, MSG, NHL.TV), coach Alain Vigneault said. He is still considered day-to-day with neck spasms.

Antti Raanta will start for the second straight game. Magnus Hellberg, who was with the team Sunday morning, is expected to be recalled from Hartford on an emergency basis to serve as Raanta's backup as he did against the Washington Capitals on Friday.
