The good news for the Bruisn was that they showed enough gumption to get back into a game that had all the markings of a blowout loss. The bad news iwas that they showed up late for the game with high-powered Rangers and never really got out of chase mode.
Still, they managed to get a point from the game at Madison Square Garden before Marian Gaborik scored 27 seconds int overtime to left the Rangers to a 4-3 win.
The B's, who never led, had clawed back from a two-goal deficit and then a late one-goal deficit to send it into the extra session.
"I'm happy with the way we reacted after the first 10 minutes," said coach Claude Julien. "We came for two points and we leave with one. But if we can keep getting points in every game without leaving any behind, we're going to be OK."
The B's scored their first power-play goal -- coming on Dougie Hamilton's first career point on Brad Marchand's goal -- and remained perfect on the penalty kill (14-for-14) on the season, with a big 5-on-3 kill in the third as well as a late kill on a Daniel Paille penalty wiht 3:50 left in regulation.
Tuukka Rask made 29 saves, several of them spectacular, including saves on Rick Nash and Gaborik on the same sequence in the final minute of regulation.
The B's also got goals from Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton, his first of the year that caem with 4:23 left in regulation that tied it and sent it to OT.
