Rangers by an inch.
The New-York Rangers has won a second game in a row at home and evened up the series with the Buffalo Sabres with a 2-1 win. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead thru Jaromir Jagr during the 2nd period and Brendan Shanahan with 10 minutes to go in the contest.
The New-York fans thought the game was in the bag but Buffalo came back within one goal quickly as Alex Kotalik scored 33 seconds after Shanahan's eventual game-winning goal.
Then in a confuse play around New-York's net with only 13 seconds to go, Daniel Briere almost took goaltender Henrik Lundqvist off-guard as he shot the puck in a semi-empty net. The puck crossed the line at about 95% of it's lenght before hitting the goalie's pad to squirt out. The video review just could not proove without any doubt that the puck entirely crossed the line. A close call for the Rangers.
Game 5 is scheduled in Buffalo. With this series now officially stretched to a minimum of 6 games, the fatigue factor will damage any of those two teams versus an eventual series with the Ottawa Senators in the Eastern conference final.
