"I thought it was pretty even going into the overtime," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "But we got spanked in the overtime."
The Bruins ended Lundqvist's shutout streak at 152 minutes, 23 seconds when he gave up a Chara's soft goal. Lundqvist appeared to have a good view of the 50-foot slap shot from just in front of the middle of the blue line and got a piece of the puck, but it trickled by him.
And when he couldn't stop Marchand, his overtime woes continued.
"It was a tough overtime period for us. They came hard," Lundqvist said. "My record is terrible in overtime, but I've just got to stick with it, play my game and hopefully it'll turn around."
NOTES: Bergeron and Gregory Campbell were the only Bruins without a shot on goal. ... Stepan's goal was the sixth against the Bruins in the first two minutes of a period in their eight playoff games. ... The teams last met in the playoffs in 1973 when the Rangers won the first-round series in five games. The previous year, they faced each other in the Stanley Cup finals, and the Bruins won in six. ... Boston's Jaromir Jagr, a former Ranger, is the only player on either team who had been born the last time the teams met in the playoffs, April 10, 1973.
