New York Rangers go for four in Thanksgiving showdown against Bruins

"But they make me come out in a 2-1 game, as we're starting to gain momentum", Marchand said following the contest.

The Rangers are 4-2-0 against opponents from the Metropolitan Division. Meanwhile, Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron continues to be out of the lineup because of a groin injury. Filip Chytil has five goals and two assists over the last 10 games for NY.

Bruins: 6-1-3, averaging 3.7 goals, 6.3 assists, 3.9 penalties and 8.6 penalty minutes while giving up 2.2 goals per game with a.934 save percentage.

"It was nearly like they were asleep for 35 minutes and after they kill off the 5 on 3, it's nearly like they chose to turn it up a little bit", Lundqvist said.

Granted, the Rangers are rolling at the moment with three wins in a row and they are slowly learning what it takes to win and win consistently.

Buchnevich's fifth goal this season put NY up 1-0 with 5:46 to play in the first period.

Krejci's feed through the slot set up Pastrnak's tying goal.

Left wing Brad Marchand appeared dazed by an elbow from the Rangers' Jacob Trouba late in the second period but wasn't pulled from the ice by the league's concussion spotter until the start of the third.

In the end it didn't matter and Marchand is cleared to play the archrival Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.

"That's embarrassing", Marchand said.

"Guys up there [in the press box] busy eating pizza and cheeseburgers and can't watch the game. Maybe next time he can pull his head out of his butt and watch the game".

NOTES: New York D Brendan Smith skated off with 7:02 left in the third after a high stick to the face from Lindholm. Their last regulation loss came back on November 8 at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings. Pastrnak finished November with 12 goals after also scoring 12 in October.

This is a model franchise and they boast one of the best top lines in all of hockey, while they could have a potential Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy candidate in David Pastrnak, who is tearing up the league. Panarin has at least a point in 16 of his last 17 games and 20 of 24 this season.

David Pastrnak tied the score in the third period, and Sean Kuraly also scored as the Bruins ran their winning streak to six games. The logo is a throwback to the 1940-era Bruins teams that won two Stanley Cup titles.
