New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Henrik Lundqvist stopped 40 shots, including 15 in a frantic third period, while Martin St. Louis netted the deciding goal early in the second and the New York Rangers stayed alive with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. Faced with the prospect of being the first team to be swept out of the Stanley Cup Finals since the Washington Capitals in 1998, Lundqvist and his club improved to 11-2 in their last 13 elimination games and 5-0 during these playoffs. Benoit Pouliot recorded a first-period tally for the Rangers, who hung on despite posting only one shot in the game's final 20 minutes. Dustin Brown scored and Jonathan Quick made 17 saves for the Kings, who can win their second title in three seasons back home in Friday's Game 5.
