Rangers edge towards final

New York Rangers beat Montreal Canadiens in overtime to take 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup third round play-off series.

Martin St Louis scored the winner to give New York a 3-2 overtime victory and put his side closer to their first trip to the Cup Final in 20 years deep into the extra session.

His shot from the right circle flew below the crossbar and above goalkeeper Dustin Tokarski's glove to leave the Rangers on the brink of the final.
