Audio: Devils Post Game

After two periods of limited action, with each team basically feeling each other out, rookie center Chris Kreider and defenseman Dan Girardi each posted a goal and an assist in the first 12 minutes of the third period, and center Artem Anisimov, who assisted on the Rangers’ second goal, added an empty-net score with 1:27 remaining to give New York its largest margin of victory in the playoffs this season.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots for fifth career postseason shutout and his second of the playoffs this year after winning Game 3 of the first round, 1-0, on April 16th.
