(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- Mats Zuccarello scored a power-play goal 1:56 into overtime, giving the New York Rangers a 3-2 decision over Boston for their seventh straight victory over the Bruins on Saturday.

The Bruins, who had erased a two-goal deficit to force the OT, were called for their second too-many-men penalty of the game to set up the winner.
