Power Rangers, Go!
The Sabres didn’t get the call this time. Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers tied the series with Tuesday’s 2-1 Game 4 win over Buffalo, but a video-reviewed save caused controversy. This no-goal got the New York Rangers even with the Buffalo Sabres in more ways than one. Henrik Lundqvist stopped Daniel Briere’s shot just short of fully crossing the goal line with 17 seconds left, and the Rangers hung on for a 2-1 victory over the Sabres on Tuesday night to square the Eastern Conference semifinal series after four games. The game went to double overtime, but a major controversy was avoided when the Rangers eventually won. This time the call went New York’s way. The best-of-seven match-up now shifts back to Buffalo, where the Sabres — the NHL’s best team in the regular season — took a 2-0 lead. Now they will be feeling the heat from a nervous, title-starved town unwilling to accept anything less than the first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Rangers in seven!!
