    Rangers Beat Penguins in OT, Take 3-1 Series Lead
    New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (30) stops a shot by Pittsburgh Penguins' Patric Hornqvist during the third period of a first-round NHL playoff hockey game in Pittsburgh Wednesday, April 22, 2015.

    Kevin Hayes scored at 3:14 of overtime to give the New York Rangers a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference first-round series.

    The Rangers lead the series 3-1 heading back to New York for Game 5 on Friday night.

    In overtime, Martin St. Louis started a goalmouth scramble when he threw the puck in front on a wraparound attempt. The puck pinballed to Carl Hagelin and went across the crease for Hayes to flip it past fallen goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. The point was Hayes' first in the postseason.

    New York's Derick Brassard tied it at 1 with 2:45 left in the second period with his third goal of the series. Patric Hornqvist opened the scoring at 2:22 of the first period.

    Fluery and New York's Henrik Lundqvist each made 22 saves.
