NEW YORK (AP) — The Rangers are buying out the contract of veteran forward Brad Richards, creating much-needed salary-cap space and parting ways with New York's de facto captain one week after being eliminated from the Stanley Cup finals.
The New York Rangers couldn't hold their lead in the third period, and they couldn't convert on near-misses in two overtimes, losing 3-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night and failing to extend the Stanley Cup finals.
Captain Dustin Brown redirected Willie Mitchell's shot 10:26 into the second overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings outlasted the New York Rangers 5-4 Saturday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Although the Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers have played 41 combined postseason games over the previous six weeks, they still have ample energy for the big finale to their epic playoff chase.
Dominic Moore scored in the second period, Henrik Lundqvist bounced back from his worst performance in the playoffs and the New York Rangers beat the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 on Thursday night to advance to the Stanley Cup finals.
