Morning jam: Devils-Rangers fact

By Elias Sports Bureau

Ryan Carter’s goal with 4:24 left in the third period snapped a 3–3 tie and proved to be the game-winner in the Devils’ 5–3 victory over the Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals. It was only the fourth time in this year’s playoffs that a player scored a tiebreaking goal in the last five minutes of the third period. The three other such goals, all in the first round, were scored by the Kings’ Dustin Penner, the Bruins’ Zdeno Chara and the Capitals’ Troy Brouwer.
