Rangers, Bruins, Red Wings And Kings All Grab Wins

(New York, NY) -- Derek Stepan's tally with under seven minutes to play gave the Rangers a 4-3 win over the Capitals in Game Three of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist says they can't get too high over the win.

New York had to fight off a Caps' power play in the final two minutes to hold on for the victory. Arron Asham, Derick Brassard and Brian Boyle also scored for the Rangers, who host Game Four on Wednesday.  Lundqvist made 28 saves in the win. Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Jay Beagle found the back of the net for Washington, which still maintains a 2-1 series lead after winning the first two games at home. Braden Holtby stopped 26 shots in defeat.

The Bruins pulled ahead in their series 2-1 by beating the Maple Leafs, 5-2. The Red Wings earned a 3-2 overtime victory over the Ducks to even their series at two. The Kings also evened up their series at two by beating the Blues, 4-3.
