Patric Hornqvist was only Pittsburgh player to score in the Penguins' 2-1 overtime loss to the visiting New York Rangers Wednesday night.

The loss means Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Pens are on the brink of elimination. They trail the Rangers 3-1 in the best-of-seven, first-round series, with Game 5 in New York Friday night. Hornqvist's goal gave the Pens a 1-0 lead early Wednesday. The right winger scored his second goal of the postseason at 2:22 of the first period but the star-studded Pittsburgh lineup couldn't get the puck past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist after that. Pittsburgh gained its first 1-0 lead of the series when Hornqvist deflected defenseman Ben Lovejoy's shot from the point past Lundqvist. Crosby chipped the puck up to the point from the slot to defenseman Paul Martin, who shoveled it over to Lovejoy for the shot from the right point. Lovejoy and Martin were credited with the assists.
