But he won just 39% of his faceoffs, and was in the box when Ondrej Palat tied the game at two during the second period. Unfortunately, the Rangers would go on to lose the game 6-5 early in overtime.

Derick Brassard leads the Rangers with three goals in four playoff games.

Dating back to the regular season, he has found the back of the net in four of his last five contests. Given how close the Rangers' first round series with Pittsburgh has been, Brassard's efforts have been essential to New York establishing a 3-1 series lead. "Derick has become a real solid two-way hockey player," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "He's very dependable when he doesn't have the puck and when he has the puck he's making plays and he’s willing to go to the tough areas to make those plays. So, he's one of our young players that's progressing and coming along."

The New York Rangers are not at all happy with their power play in the playoffs.

The Rangers scored once in seven chances on Saturday when Derick Brassard found the back of the net but other than that, they have been weak with the man-advantage. "My comment on the power play is we have a group of guys that have frustrated themselves, and we just have to go out and get some good mojo going and find a way to pop a couple in a relax a little bit on it," Derek Stepan said. "We've got a lot of guys who are gripping the stick, and there’s no need for that, especially now. We need to get some positive energy on it, zip it around, and make some plays."
