Never count the New York Rangers out, ever!

Like they did against the Pittsburgh Penguins when they were down three games to one, the Rangers have stormed back against the Carolina Hurricanes, a series they were trailing 0-2, to even things up at two games a piece after a 4-1 win on Tuesday night.

“We’re confident,” Andrew Copp said. “We get two games where we win, we play well, we give up two goals total. Now the reverse of the talk of you guys is on them now. We just got to kind of block all that out and stay with our game. Guys are feeling better about themselves and we got to ride this momentum into Carolina.”

The Rangers should be feeling great. As for Carolina they remain winless on the road in the postseason at 0-5. They are 6-0 back in Charlotte where the series will shift for critical Game 5.

The Rangers opened up the scoring in the first period when Frank Vatrano converted on a power play 6:30 minutes into the contest to give the Blue Shirts a 1-0 lead. That lead would turn into a run of three unanswered goals by New York as Adam Fox and Mika Zibanejad tallied the next two scores.

Andrew Copp would cap off the scoring with his fifth goal of the postseason midway through the third period.

Igor Shesterkin parlayed his 43 save night on Sunday with 30 saves on Tuesday night. His goals against average has dropped to 2.77 in the postseason.
