Devils Vs. Rangers, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 6: New York Ties Game At 2-2 After 2 Periods

The New York Rangers scored twice in the second period of game six against the New Jersey Devils , leaving the score tied at 2-2 entering the third period of game six of their series. The first goal came 9:47 into the second, with Ryan McDonah passing from behind the net to Ruslan Fedotenko , who was able to put it past New Jersey's Martin Brodeur . The tying goal came from Ryan Callahan , who had a long shot from Dan Girardi ricochet off his kneepad and skirt just inside the post.

Each team picked up one penalty in the second, with New Jersey's Andrei Ponikarovsky getting called for interference 1:23 into the period. Michael Del Zotto was called for high sticking at 7:16, but replays would show that Steve Bernier may have been taking that contact for more than it was worth.
