Brandon Sutter scored a shorthanded goal to break a second-period tie and the Pittsburgh Penguins moved within one win of the Eastern Conference finals with a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Pittsburgh, which has won three straight after a series-opening loss, can advance with a Game 5 victory at home Friday night.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 13 shots for the Penguins. Carl Hagelin's tying tally in the second period was the Rangers' first goal in 145 minutes, 30 seconds of playing time.
Mats Zuccarello backhanded in a goal with 6:53 left to cut the Rangers' deficit to 3-2.
