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. Jones: Alex Cobb proves again why he's Rays' stopper, no matter how long he's here

    The Heater


    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  2. Twice the talent: IMG football expands to two teams this fall


    BRADENTON — When IMG Academy fielded its first varsity football team in 2013, there were 51 players on the roster. Since then, the roster has nearly tripled. With no junior varsity it was difficult for some to find playing time, and players do not come to IMG to sit the bench.

    The solution? Start another …
