Rangers capture edge back

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery looks up after giving up a goal to Rangers wing Marty St. Louis in the first period.

Flyers goaltender Ray Emery looks up after giving up a goal to Rangers wing Marty St. Louis in the first period.

PHILADELPHIA — Never afraid to raise his fists, Dan Carcillo made his mark in the league as a puncher more than a postseason star.

Carcillo was a little of both for New York in Game 3.

The left wing was one of four Rangers to score Tuesday night in a 4-1 win over the Flyers.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the first-round, best-of-seven Eastern Conference series as New York regained home-ice advantage.

Carcillo, an ex-Flyer, went eye to eye with a taunting fan after his insurance goal in the third period. He had 100 penalty minutes and only four goals in the regular season.

"When you get pigeonholed into a role, it's hard to change people's minds in this league," he said. "When you get in and you get an opportunity like this, you've got to make the most of it."

New York chased Philadelphia goalie Ray Emery in the third. Steve Mason, the starter who missed the first three games injured, came on in relief.

Bruins blank Wings

DETROIT — Tuukka Rask had a 23-save shutout to give the Bruins a 3-0 win over the Red Wings for a 2-1 series lead.

Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron scored in the first as Boston, which won the Presidents' Trophy, took the lead for the first time in the series.

Jimmy Howard had 31 saves for Detroit but could not stop Hamilton's wrist shot, which looked stoppable, from the top of the right circle in the first.

Detroit was without forward Daniel Alfredsson (back).

Cooke hearing: Wild left wing Matt Cooke has a hearing today at the league office in New York about his kneeing penalty that injured Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie on Monday. Cooke is likely to be suspended. His knee clipped Barrie's and Barrie, who led Colorado's defensemen this season with 13 goals, is out at least four weeks.

St. Louis a finalist: Former Lightning captain Marty St. Louis, who was traded to the Rangers last month, is a finalist for the Lady Byng Trophy. St. Louis, who won the award for "gentlemanly conduct" while with the Lightning in 2010, '11 and '13, is joined by Sharks forward Patrick Marleau and Avalanche forward Ryan O'Reilly.

Around the league: Defenseman Mark Fayne, an unrestricted free agent who played for the Devils last season, had groin surgery and is expected to need at least eight weeks to recover.

  1. Rays morning after: A lot that went into a marathon win


    Rays manager Kevin Cash had a simple strategy when Fox Sports Sun's Alex Corddry asked him how the team would move on from Sunday's marathon win and get ready to face the Rangers tonight in Texas:

    Kevin Kiermaier of the Rays celebrates as teammate Michael Martinez slides safely into home plate to score a run against the Minnesota Twins during the 14th inning.
  2. Rays journal: Erasmo Ramirez ready to start a day after closing game

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — RHP Erasmo Ramirez was on the mound to finish Sunday's 15-inning marathon win over the Twins and will start tonight's game against the Rangers.

    The Rays’ Erasmo Ramirez throws 12 pitches in the 15th inning against the Twins to earn the save then says after the game that he’s ready to make his scheduled start against the Rangers: “My arm feels good.”
  3. Rays exhausted but happy after 15-inning win over Twins (w/video)

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.
  4. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    TV and Radio

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.
  5. Takuma Sato surprise winner of wreck-filled Indy 500

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.
