New York Rangers beat Pittsburgh to extend series to 7th game

The New York Rangers beat the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 to set up a deciding Game 7 in their Eastern Conference playoff series.


The Associated Press

NEW YORK – Martin St. Louis and Carl Hagelin scored 2:51 apart in the first period, Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves and the New York Rangers avoided elimination again with a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.

The Eastern Conference semifinal series will be decided in Game 7 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The Penguins, who led the series 3-1, failed in their first attempt to advance with a 5-1 home loss Friday.

Derick Brassard pushed the Rangers’ lead to 3-1 in the second period of Game 6.

Brandon Sutter scored for the Penguins, who got 26 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury.

“We put ourselves in a bad position early,” Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said.

The Rangers are 9-2 in their past 11 games when facing elimination, dating to Game 6 of the first round in 2012 in Ottawa. New York has never won a series it trailed 3-1.

Bryan Bickell also scored and Corey Crawford made 27 saves as Chicago bounced back from consecutive losses in Minnesota. At the United Center, the defending champion Blackhawks are 6-0 in this postseason.
