These are the Rangers who also lost the first two games of their opening series on the road, then won the next two at home. They lost Game 5 in Washington but won the last two games behind shutouts by Lundqvist.
"We've done it before," he said, "but I think we are playing a better team now so it's going to be tough to do it."
Ahead or behind, home or away, the Bruins plan to play with the same determination the entire game.
"You can't take anything for granted," Boychuk said. "It's playoffs. Anything can happen, and sometimes a team can play better in front of their hometown."
NOTES: The last time Lundqvist allowed more than four goals was March 9, 2011, in a 5-2 loss to Anaheim. In the next 151 games he allowed four goals just 13 times. ... The Bruins played their second straight game without injured veteran defensemen Andrew Ference, Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden ... A defenseman got a goal or an assist on each of Boston's goals. ... The margin of victory was more than two for just the second time in 26 games between the teams. ... In their nine playoff games, the Rangers have scored on two of 35 power plays. They're 0 for 7 against the Bruins.
