Rangers beat Buffalo in double overtime

Rangers beat Buffalo in double overtime

Michal Rozsival fired from just inside the blue line 16:43 into the second overtime and lifted New York over the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 and shot some life into the Rangers' NHL season on Sunday.
Buffalo still leads the Eastern Conference semifinal series 2-1, but the Rangers can get even with a Game 4 victory on Tuesday in Madison Square Garden.
Jaromir Jagr gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the second period, but the Sabres tied it late in the third when Daniel Briere finally took advantage of a slew of Buffalo power plays.
After that, it was a goaltending duel between Henrik Lundqvist and Sabres counterpart Ryan Miller. Lundqvist stopped 38 shots and became a winner when Rozsival, sore knee and all, beat Miller with the Rangers' 46th shot.
That was enough to snap the Sabres' six-game winning streak against the Rangers and their five-game run overall in the playoffs against New York's Islanders and Rangers.
Ducks 3, Canucks 2
At Vancouver, British Columbia, Corey Perry scored the go-ahead goal on a power play 7:51 into the third period as Anaheim recovered from a double-overtime loss at home in Game 2 with a victory.
Francois Beauchemin and Dustin Penner also scored, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves, including three in the final seconds, as the Ducks took a 2-1 lead in the series.
Special teams were the difference for the Ducks, who killed off seven of eight Vancouver power plays _ including a pair of lengthy 5-on-3 advantages _ and converted two of their four chances at the other end.
Markus Naslund and Daniel Sedin scored, and Roberto Luongo made 21 saves for the Canucks, who have already bounced back from a 5-1 loss in Game 1 and can tie the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series at home on Tuesday.
