Lundqvist with a glove save, and a beauty

A sloppy Rangers turnover in their own zone threatened to turn into the first score of the game, but Henrik Lundqvist flashed the leather for a fantastic save on Steven Stamkos to keep things scoreless. Follow live

What a save by Lundqvist. His best of the playoffs in front on Stamkos after a horrible giveaway by Yandle. Glove save and a beauty! #NYR

Joe McDonald @ESPNJoeyMac

There were no shots in the final 9:12 of the first period. Rangers' Dan Girardi had the last shot at 10:48 of the opening period.

Rangers' drought part of scoreless first

New York has a 6-4 lead in shots at the first intermission, but Tampa Bay held the Rangers without a shot on goal for the final 9 minutes of the first period of a 0-0 Game 5. Follow live

#NYR unable to get anything going on the power play, but has done good work controlling neutral zone. Only four #TBL shots in first period.

It's the little things that matter

On the surface, Game 5 between the Rangers and Lightning is being played at a fairly cordial pace. But little slashes and blows have led to a bit of chippiness, and the Rangers are once again on the power play after Tyler Johnson was sent off for slashing. Follow live

Bishop looks fine on first stop

Marc Staal's pass out of the Rangers zone started an odd-man rush for New York that ended on the stick of Martin St. Louis, but Ben Bishop made a staunch stop on a point-blank shot. Follow live
