Green nailed a one-timer from high in the slot on a feed from Mike Ribeiro during a power play. Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh was in the penalty box for delay of game, having lifted the puck over the glass in New York’s defensive zone.

Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers.

Game 3 is Monday in New York.
