PHILADELPHIA (AP) --- Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi and Dan
Carcillo scored goals, leading the New York Rangers to a 4-1 win over the
Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday night.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the
best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Friday in Philadelphia.
Lundqvist was backed by a defense that delivered with a flurry of blocked shots
to stymie the Flyers. The Rangers took an early 2-0 lead and that was enough of
a cushion for a team that led the Eastern Conference with 25 road victories.
Mark Streit scored for the Flyers.
Ray Emery struggled in net in his third straight start of the postseason for
Steve Mason, and was lifted late in the third period.
