NEW YORK — As has been the case for most of the series, the Bruins dominated in almost way and fashion in the opening 20 minutes of Game 4 Thursday night here at Madison Square Garden. And, as has been the case for most of the series, Henrik Lundqvist [1] has kept the Rangers in the game.

The Bruins out-shot the Rangers, 12-4, with four of those 12 shots coming on an early Bruins power play.

Here, thanks to the Boston Bruins [2] media relations department, are some other notes:
