Devils Vs. Rangers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 3: Rangers Beat Devils, 3-0

The New York Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, 3-0, taking a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, was the star of the game. The Devils out-shot the Rangers, 36-22, but because Lundqvist saved every shot attempted against him, the Rangers were able to hang close for two periods and end the game in the third with three goals. The Devils also failed to convert on all five power-play opportunities.

The Rangers broke a scoreless tie with two goals in the first 5:16 of the third period. Dan Girardi scored a power play goal at the 3:19 mark off an assist from Brad Richards and Chris Kreider scored on a tip-in at 5:16. New York completed the scoring with an empty-net goal at the 17:47 mark by Ryan Callahan.

Game four is scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. ET, in New Jersey, televised on NBC Sports Network.
