Rangers Vs. Devils, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 2: Late Goal From New Jersey Ties It At 2-2 After Two Periods

The New York Rangers and the New Jersey Devils are all tied up after two periods of play in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday night. The Rangers scored twice and the Devils added another goal to make it a 2-2 after the first 40 minutes of play.

New York used two power play opportunities to put themselves on the board. With the man advantage just over two minutes into the second period, Marc Staal got a lucky break on a shot that went high, bounced off the glass onto Martin Broduer's pads and into the net to even the score.

Ten minutes later, with Travis Zajac off the ice for interference, Chris Kreider scored his fourth goal of the playoffs to give the Rangers a one-goal lead. Kreider deflected a shot from Anton Stralman for the score.

New Jersey evened things with less than two minutes left in the period. Bryce Salvador fired a long point shot that Ryan Carter deflected high and into the net.
