The New York Rangers are still alive.
Down and nearly out, the Blue Shirts kept their season alive Thursday night when Chris Kreider poked a Rick Nash pass past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask seven minutes into overtime to beat Boston 4-3 in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal matchup at Madison Square Garden.
The win extends the best-of-seven series to a fifth game, with the Bruins leading 3 games to 1.
With the Rangers down 2-0 midway through the second period, Carl Hagelin scored to pull New York to within one before Derek Stepan tied it early in the third.
Following a third-period goal by Boston's Tyler Seguin, Brian Boyle again tied the game on New York's first power-play goal of the series to set up Kreider's heroics.
The Rangers, who were outscored 10-5 in the series' first three games, scratched veteran center Brad Richards for Thursday's game in an effort to jump-start their offense.
Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves in the win.
Game 5 will be Saturday afternoon in Boston.
