Rangers force Game Seven; Chicago puts Wild on brink; Bruins can close out Habs

By John Vogl

As the NHL playoffs near the midway point, the league is thrilled with the new postseason setup. There's more to come.

The Rangers forced a Game Seven with another victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday night. Martin St. Louis opened the scoring and Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves as New York avoided elimination with a 3-1 victory. The deciding game will be 7 p.m. Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Minnesota will need a Game Six victory Tuesday to keep its postseason alive. Chicago earned a 2-1 victory and 3-2 series lead Sunday night on Jonathan Toews' winning goal early in the third.

The Boston Bruins can advance to the Eastern Conference final tonight with a win in Montreal. The Bruins hold a 3-2 series lead. Anaheim and Los Angeles also play tonight, with the winner take a 3-2 lead in the series.
