Bruins bury Rangers to take 2-0 series lead

Boston, MA, United States (4E Sports) - Brad Marchand and Milan Lucic scored in the final period after Johnny Boychuk broke a tie in the second to push the Boston Bruins past the New York Rangers 5-2 Sunday.
The Bruins now enjoy a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Boston never trailed as rookie Torey Krug scored the first goal before Rangers captain Ryan Callahan tied it. Gregory Campbell made it 2-1 for the Bruins, but the Rangers pulled even again on Rick Nash's goal.
The Bruins went ahead to stay, 3-2, at 12:08 of the second period when Johnny Boychuk shot a 40-footer inside the near post for a goal.
Brad Marchand gave Boston a 4-2 lead just 26 seconds into the third. Patrice Bergeron carried the puck in deep on the right side and passed across the crease to Marchand, who had gotten behind defenseman Dan Girardi for a tip-in.
Lucic made it 5-2 at 12:39. He skated into the New York end and gave the puck to David Krejci, who was stopped by Ranegrs goalie Henric Lundqvist, but Lucic converted the rebound.
Tuukka Rask was solid again for the Bruins, stopping 35 shots.
