Bruins Come Back to Earn Point, But Fall in Shootout to Rangers

Bruins Nice picBOSTON — Ryan Callahan scored as the final participant in the shootout and the New York Rangers recovered after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 37 shots, plus three of the four attempts in the shootout. Carl Hagelin scored for the second straight game, and Derek Stepan and Anton Stralman each added an unassisted goal for the Rangers.

Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for the Bruins, who have three losses this season and two of them are to the Rangers after regulation.

David Krejci made it 3-1 with 11 minutes left, then Nathan Horton and Brad Marchand scored in the final 91 seconds to send the game into overtime.

New York won for the fourth time in five games.

The Rangers broke a scoreless tie midway through the first period when Rick Nash stickhandled through two defensemen and slid the puck over to Hagelin, who had an empty half of a net to shoot at. Stepan stole the puck at center ice and snapped a shot past Rask to make it 2-0 in the second.

The Rangers started the third period with a two-goal lead and a two-man advantage. Boston killed off the penalties, but a minute later Stralman floated a seemingly harmless shot toward Rask that got through the goalie’s pads and trickled into the net.

Krejci put back a rebound to make it 3-1. Horton scored with 1:31 left in regulation to make it a one-goal game and awaken the sold-out building. Just 48 seconds later, with 43 seconds left in regulation and Rask off for an extra skater, Marchand found the top of the net to tie it.

Lundqvist stopped Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron in the shootout, and Rask stopped Marian Gaborik before Nash went right and then left to slide the puck into the net. Marchand scored for Boston to tie it, and Brad Richards missed for New York before Krejci went wide.

Callahan put in a long wrist shot to end it.
