Bruins rally from three-goal deficit in Game 7

(Continued)

BOSTON —

Rangers 5, Capitals 0: In Washington, led by Henrik Lundqvist’s 35 saves in a second consecutive shutout, and goals from some unlikely sources, the New York Rangers beat the Washington Capitals in Game 7 to reach the Eastern Conference semifinals.

New York contained Alex Ovechkin again and completed its comeback after trailing in the series 2-0 and 3-2 – the latest in Washington’s long history of playoff collapses.

Sixth-seeded New York faces No. 4 Boston in the second round.

It is the first time New York won a Game 7 on the road in its history.

Arron Asham put New York ahead in the first period, before Taylor Pyatt and Michael Del Zotto made it 3-0 early in the second on goals 2:10 apart.

Ryan Callahan added a goal 13 seconds into the third period, and when Mats Zuccarello scored with about 13 1⁄2 minutes remaining, thousands of red-clad fans streamed to the exits.
