NEW YORK -- Chris Kreider proudly wore the Broadway Hat in the victorious New York Rangers dressing rm as he tried to describe the feeling of saving his teams season. Kreider deftly steered in a pass from Rick Nash 7:03 into overtime, and the Rangers stayed alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. "It is so surreal," the 22-year-old Kreider said. "Its not something that can really be explained. It is something that just has to be felt, but it was awesome. Im just excited to give these guys an opportunity to play another game. "There is no quit in this rm." New York, which erased 2-0 and 3-2 deficits, still trails the Eastern Conference semifinal series 3-1. The Rangers will need to win again on Saturday in Boston to force a Game 6 back in Madison Square Garden. The Rangers, who were outshot 40-32, won a faceoff deep in their zone, and Nash rushed the puck up ice. He stopped above the right circle and fed a hard pass in front that Kreider skated into and tipped past goalie Tuukka Rask for his first of the playoffs. New York, 0-3 in overtime in these playoffs, was eliminated from the conference finals last year by New Jersey in extra time in Game 6. "It is time for us to win an overtime game," Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist said. "This was a big one. It was such a great feeling to see that puck go in." Kreider, who made his NHL debut in last years playoffs, has six career post-season goals in just 25 games. "I was lucky enough to play with Rick," Kreider said. "Just trying to go hard to the net. Hes such a talented player. He was able to find my tape, and I tried to put it on net." Derek Stepan and Brian Boyle scored tying goals in the third period for the Rangers, who even found success on the power play. Carl Hagelin netted New Yorks first goal of the game in the second period. Lundqvist made 37 saves for New York, which managed only five goals total in the first three games against Boston. Boston got second-period goals from Nathan Horton and rising star Torey Krug to build an early lead. Tyler Seguins first of the playoffs put the Bruins back on top 3-2 in the third. Only three teams have lost a series after leading 3-0, but the Bruins are the most recent to do it in 2010 against Philadelphia. "Its a resilient group," Kreider said. "The tone of the dressing rm was the same as positive and upbeat. Were excited to play more hockey." One more win will put Boston back into the conference finals for the second time in three years. The Bruins gave up a 3-1 lead to Toronto in the first round before rallying in Game 7 to advance. "There is no panic here," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "We have to go back home and play a better game." Stepan got New York even at 2 just 1:15 into the third after a dump-in. Rask went behind the net to slow the puck down for defenceman Zdeno Chara, but Stepan forced a turnover when he surprised Chara from behind. Stepan gathered the puck, came around in front and tucked the puck inside the left post for his team-leading fourth of the playoffs. "We made some mistakes tonight, mistakes we havent been making, mistakes you cant have, and they capitalized on them," Chara said. "They made us pay. "These nights are going to happen. They played to win, and we didnt match their intensity at times." The Bruins made the most of another power play and tk a 3-2 lead just 2 seconds after a goalie interference penalty against Ryan McDonagh expired. Seguin got to his own rebound in close and shoved a shot past Lundqvist at 8:06. However, the Rangers still wouldnt go away and they finally connected on the power play for the first time in the series and the third time in 41 man-advantages this post-season. Boyle tk a pass from Stepan in the slot and snapped a drive that nestled into the middle of the net at 10:00 after the Bruins were caught with t many men on the ice. New York coach John Tortorella made desperate moves with his lineup, hoping to find some chemistry to spark his club. Tortorella benched star centre Brad Richards, who had just one goal in the playoffs, and rugged forward Arron Asham in favour of seldom-used Kris Newbury and Micheal Haley. "By no means is this a situation where I take him out and Im blaming him," Tortorella said of Richards. "I need to make decisions about what I feel is right for our team to win tonights game, and thats why I made that decision." Veteran Roman Hamrlik also played for the first time in these playoffs in place of injured defenceman Anton Stralman, who left Game 3 in the second period. The Bruins used their power play to grab control in the second period, connecting twice in a span of 3:02 to take a 2-0 lead. After Newbury was sent off for goalie interference, when he knocked down Rask, Horton got the scoring going. He tried to feed a pass from the bottom of the left circle into the slot, but the puck hit Rangers defenceman Michael Del Zotto and bounced back to Horton. This time, Horton let a shot go that struck the inside of Lundqvists left leg and caromed in at 49. Lundqvist blocked a hard shot by Chara, who rattled a drive off of the goalies mask. At the next stoppage, there was a brief delay as Lundqvist had repairs made. Del Zotto tk an interference penalty 1:25 after Boston tk the lead, and Krug made the Rangers pay again. Krug, a rkie defenceman who made his NHL post-season debut in the series opener, fired a slap shot from the Stanley Cup logo in the Rangers zone that sailed past Lundqvist and into the top right corner at 7:41. Krug has scored in three of the four games he has played in this series, and his goal gave Boston as many power-play tallies at Madison Square Garden in this playoff year as the host Rangers had mustered to that point. However, New York got a big break just 54 seconds later to cut the deficit in half. As the Rangers were moving the puck up ice, Rask stumbled in the crease and fell at around the same time that Hagelin was backhanding a shot on net. Sliding as slowly as possible, the puck eluded Rask as he tried to recover in time to stop it. "We need to be more focused, I need to be more focused," Rask said. "I just tk a step to the side in what I think probably was a skate mark or something. I lost my balance and the rest is history. "We gave them a couple of gifts and it cost us the game." It tk nearly seven minutes before New York recorded its first shot on Rask -- a drive by defenceman John Mre -- and Boston controlled the period with a 12-4 edge in shots.

NEW YORK -- Can serenity come from suffering?For that matter, can serenity be found in New York City, specifically, in this case, the Bronx?Those are the questions I pondered as I ran the back hills of Van Cortlandt Parks famed cross-country trails. I was in the middle of a race put on by the Van Cortlandt Park Track Club, a 5K run that began with a sprint across the flats and a dash into the hills of New York Citys third-largest park, which sprawls for more than 1,000 acres across the northeast corner of the Bronx.Lking out to the edge of the park from some spots, you can see tall apartment buildings. But in other places, youre running on trails that seem so green and wild, lined with so many trees, that you might as well be in the wds.The park has been a mecca for cross-country runners for over 100 years. Its courses opened in 1913. Famed athletes whove competed here include Alberto Salazar, Alan Webb, Edward Cheserek, Marty Liquori and Matt Centrowitz, who won the gold at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in the 1,500-meter race.I first raced here in high schl, a skinny lad unaware of the suffering and false rabbit tactics of rival teams. I sn learned to embrace the suck -- just deal with it! -- and with time I also learned to fly. Theres a trick to cross-country, you seee.dddddddddddd Of course you have to have the strength to power up and defeat your opponent on the ascent, but the race can be won on the downhill. If you can give in to gravity, to almost fall, youll fly down. With arms out for balance, you can speed away from even your toughest opponent.The courses are the same as in my heyday, with flats, a cowpath, a bridge and back hill lp, as well as Cemetery Hill (also known as Vault Hill), which is part of a route used for college races. Race distances are 5K, 8K or 10K. For hill training, Van Cortlandt is a must. For runners and racers, it should be on your bucket list.But take your cue from metal signs along the courses depicting the turtle and the hare. While I like to try to race fast here (and re-live my youth), I suppose the hare suggests that you can also take it easy. You can run or jog, but you can also stroll or just meander through a park that is one of New York Citys emerald treasures.The Van Cortlandt Park Track Club sometimes gives winners carrot cake muffins from Lloyds Carrot Cake shop (6087 Broadway in the Bronx), across from the start/finish line. Whatever your pace, you can seek your rewards there as well. ' ' '
