BOSTON (AP) If the Boston Bruins want an example of what's needed in the final few games to make the playoffs, they can simply watch a replay of the first period against the New York Rangers.
Milan Lucic scored twice in the first 10 minutes, Carl Soderberg also scored in the first period, and the Bruins spoiled New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's return after a long layoff with a 4-2 victory over the Rangers.
The Bruins moved ahead 1-0 less than 2 minutes into the game when a rebound caromed into the net off Lucic's right skate. It was originally waved off, but counted after a replay review. The Bruins went on to build a 3-0 lead after one.
