BOSTON -- Good things happen for the Bruins in overtime. Amani Hooker Titans Jersey . Even for Brad Marchand. Bostons leading goal-scorer during the regular season scored his first of the post-season with 4:20 left in the first overtime and the Bruins beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Thursday night in the first playoff game in 40 years between the Original Six teams. "Its always frustrating" not to score, Marchand said, "but theres so many other areas of the game. Its always nice to get the first one and you hope you just keep going." The win was Bostons third straight in overtime, and New Yorks third straight loss in extra time. "I thought it was pretty even going into the overtime," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "But we got spanked in the overtime." Both teams advanced with Game 7 victories Monday night. The Rangers beat the Washington Capitals 5-0 behind Henrik Lundqvists second consecutive shutout. The Bruins overcame a three-goal deficit with 11 minutes left in regulation and beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 on Patrice Bergerons goal in overtime. "I really thought our guys turned the page on that historical game," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. Marchand scored on a pass from Bergeron. Marchand had carried the puck up the right side, passed it to Bergeron and kept going toward the net. Bergeron passed across the slot and Marchand tipped it past Lundqvist from the left side of the crease. "I told Marchand when we were pretty close to each other on the wall to go back door," Bergeron said. "It was good to see him score because I thought he had some pretty good looks tonight." Boston outshot New York 16-5 in overtime. "I kind of knew he was coming in the middle, but I was just too locked in on the puck," Lundqvist said. "Sooner or later when you face a lot of chances like that, youre going to make a mistake." The Bruins carried the play throughout overtime. They applied constant pressure, but couldnt score during a power play when Derek Dorsett was penalized for interference at 2:20 of overtime. Boston nearly won in regulation, but Johnny Boychuks shot from the right point clanged off the left post with one-tenth of a second remaining. Then he hit the left post at the other end of the ice at 6:34 of overtime. Zdeno Chara gave Boston a 1-0 lead at 12:23 of the second before Ryan McDonagh tied it with 1.3 seconds left in the period. Derek Stepan put the Rangers ahead 2-1 just 14 seconds into the third period, and Torey Krug tied it on a power play with his first NHL goal in four career games. "For his first goal, he couldnt have asked for better timing," Julien said. Game 2 of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals is set for Sunday night in Boston. On Thursday, the Bruins played without three injured veteran defencemen: Andrew Ference, Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden. Three rookies started on defence: Dougie Hamilton, Matt Bartkowski and Krug, who was called up from Providence of the AHL after Seidenberg was hurt early in the first period Monday night. The Bruins ended Lundqvists shutout streak at 152 minutes, 23 seconds when he gave up a Charas 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. That lead nearly held up through the second period. But when Boychuk passed it from in front of his net to Tyler Seguin in the right circle, Rick Nash hit Sequins stick and the puck went to McDonagh at the left point. McDonaghs rising slap shot soared over the right arm of goalie Tuukka Rask. Stepan then made it 2-1 on a 30-foot shot from the slot through Rasks legs, two goals in 15.3 seconds. Krug tied the game with teammate David Krejci in front of the net trying to screen Lundqvist. The shot from just inside the top of the left circle went under Lundqvists left arm. Then Marchand beat Lundqvist to win in the extra session. "It was a tough overtime period for us. They came hard," Lundqvist said. "My record is terrible in overtime, but Ive just got to stick with it, play my game and hopefully itll turn around." Notes: Stepans 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. ... Both teams leading goal scorers in the regular season had no goals in eight playoff games heading in. New Yorks Nash stretched that unwanted string to nine, but Marchands goal won the game. . ... Bostons 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 on April 10, 1973. Bruce Matthews Youth Jersey . And follow TSN.ca right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. Custom Tennessee Titans Jerseys . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-24-Derrick-Henry-Womens-Jersey/ . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. DALLAS -- SMU coach Tim Jankovich watched the Mustangs run out to a 32-point lead in the first half against Stanford and couldnt help but take stock of his team in his first year replacing Hall of Famer Larry Brown.Sterling Brown scored 16 points and SMU rolled to a 72-49 win over the Cardinal on Monday night for a 22nd consecutive non-conference home victory. More notably from Jankovichs perspective, it was the fifth straight win -- and most impressive -- since dropping a pair on the road at Southern California and Boise State.Were certainly far more toward the team that I want us to be than we were three weeks ago or so, Jankovich said. What Im picturing and what I feel like were capable, I think weve got a lot of growth potential left. And I am very excited about that.Duke transfer Semi Ojeleye had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Mustangs (9-3), who shot 59 percent to 21 percent in the first half for the Cardinal while taking leads of 12-0, 30-7 and 44-12.Reid Travis, the leading scorer for Stanford (7-4), didnt get a shot in the first half, when Cardinal starters scored one point. He scored all 10 of his points in the second half, while Marcus Sheffield led Stanford with 13 points.Its hard to get the ball inside when the other team doesnt want it to be there, Stanford coach Jerod Haase said. We took the easy route and werent able to get him touches and thats why he didnt get any shots.Shake Milton had 11 points and a career-high nine assists, four on alley-oop dunks. Three were to Jarrey Foster, and the other Ben Moore, who had four of SMUs seven blocks, one off its season high. Fosters second alley-oop made it 44-12 with 5:15 left in the first half.We were knocking down shots here and there and just moving the ball, playing unselfishly, Foster said. I would say that was probably one of the best halves weve played, a lot of energy.The Mustangs, who are 40-3 at home siince the start of the 2014-15 season, had a sluggish second half, especially compared to the first, shooting 42 percent and getting outscored 30-24. Jurrell Casey Jersey. In the second half, its not like they were playing the same way either, Haase said. Its really hard to gauge.WHERES MOORE?Moore scored all 10 of his points before leaving in the first half with a cut on his lip that required stitches. He was limited to 10 minutes after halftime, but still had a game-high nine rebounds. Its not a lot of fun when Ben Moore is in the dressing room ... getting stitched up and you just keep looking down the bench, going `Is he going to come back or not? Jankovich said.BIG PICTUREStanford: It was a reality check less than two weeks before the Pac-12 opener, with the Cardinal shooting 21 percent in the first half while falling behind by 20 points in less than 9 minutes. Stanford was much more competitive in the first half of a loss at No. 3 Kansas.SMU: A blowout loss to Michigan, followed soon after by the USC and Boise losses, dropped the Mustangs from Top 25 consideration. But they might start getting votes if anyone notices the huge first-half lead in this game.UP NEXTStanford: After wrapping up a non-conference road schedule that covered about 25,000 miles and included a trip to China, the Cardinal get a final Pac-12 tuneup at home against Idaho on Thursday. The league schedule opens at home against Arizona State (Dec. 30) and Arizona (Jan. 1).SMU: The Mustangs finish non-conference with a rare back-to-back, hosting Albany on Tuesday.
