NEW YORK — The Bruins banked their league-leading 85th and 86th points of the season here Sunday afternoon, working the icy acreage just blocks south of Times Square with the proficiency of a master pickpocket filching wallets during the ball drop on New Year’s Eve.

The two Charlies, McAvoy and Coyle, each pocketed unassisted goals that built a 2-0 lead through 40 minutes, and then Patrice Bergeron slid home an empty-netter with help from Brad Marchand (who else?) to complete a tidy 3-1 win over the Rangers in front of a full-house 18,006 at Madison Square Garden.

  Rangers face tough test vs. league-leading Bruins The New York Rangers are on their longest winning streak of the season as they attempt to inch closer to a playoff spot in the crowded Eastern Conference. The competition level will significantly increase Sunday afternoon when the Rangers host the league-leading Boston Bruins.New York is on its first four-game winning streak since Oct. 30-Nov. 6, 2018, and is attempting to win five in a row for the first time since Oct. 31-Nov. 11, 2017. After a 3-2 home loss to Buffalo on Feb. 7, the Rangers were nine points out of the second wild card, and they enter Sunday seven points out. The Rangers began the streak Feb.

It was six Wednesdays ago that the New York Rangers last hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden. At the time, the Penguins were This is a great opportunities for the Rangers on home ice. Obviously the Penguins are missing guys, but the Rangers have got to start getting some

The win, their eighth in nine games (8-1-0) since returning from their late-January bye break, sent the Bruins off on a three-game road trip with their manifest all but filled out for the postseason.

They have 22 games left in the First Season, buoyed by the confidence that comes with having outscored the opposition by nearly 3:1 (30-11) ever since taking their late-January 10-day hiatus. They now could play .500 the rest of the way and still finish with 108 points and one of the 16 playoff berths in the East.

If there’s a quibble of late, noted Bruce Cassidy, it’s the power play, which was shut out twice by the Blueshirts, who dropped to a fire sale 30-24-4 and know that not even ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg’s billions could buy them a spot in the postseason.

Devils trade Andy Greene to Islanders

The Rangers were awarded a man advantage with 3:44 left, when Bergeron took a necessary hooking penalty to stop Derek Stepan, who was open in The Bruins were playing their first game since their amazing Game 7 comeback against Toronto on Monday, when they scored two goals in the last 82

The Rangers scored on two of them, both in the second period, the first coming from Rick Nash at 9:16 to cut the Bruins lead to 2-1 and give the Blueshirts some life. After Nash’s goal, Kevin Hayes took advantage of a rattled McIntyre and banked one in off his back to tie, 2-2. Following Pirri’s two goals

“It can be crisper,” said the Bruins coach, referring to the club’s power play. “I thought tonight wasn’t bad, we just misfired on one [a setup for David Pastrnak in which his stick shattered]. Earlier in the year, they were going in for him. That’s an area we’ll keep harping on.”

Otherwise, as Cassidy ticked off his checklist, the Bruins have been disciplined, stuck to their overall game plan night after night, and penalty killing has been a strong suit, muting 4 of 4 Blueshirt advantages here until Mika Zibanejad popped one to cut the lead to 2-1 midway through the third period.

“Not a lot to complain about,” said Cassidy, whose charges play the next three on the road, with stops in Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver prior to next Monday’s trade deadline. “Obviously, we want to finish [scoring chances] a little better, but who doesn’t? For the most part, we’re getting enough goals to win.”

Watch: Bruins' DeBrusk get interviewed by his dad before puck drop

  Watch: Bruins' DeBrusk get interviewed by his dad before puck drop Louie DeBrusk, a former player and now a commentator with Sportsnet, got to interview his son before Wednesday night’s game in Edmonton.The elder DeBrusk asked the player he addressed as “kiddo” what it was like to be home in Edmonton for a few days. The response: “It’s nice to see the friends and family. Kind of get sick of hearing my dad’s hunting stories.” It may have been the first benchside interview that ended with, “Love you, Dad.

“Sometimes it’s tough with the quick turnaround,” Lundqvist said after the game, his team getting Monday off before returning to practice on Tuesday in anticipation of Wednesday night’s prime-time game against the Bruins at the Garden. “It wasn’t our best game,” Lundqvist said

McAvoy, who grew up in nearby Long Beach, N.Y., connected for the 1-0 lead with 42 seconds left in the first. He collected the puck high in the zone on the right wall, snapped off a shot with Chris Wagner running a screen, and the puck Ping-Ponged by the outstretched arm of Alexandar Georgiev (31 saves).

McAvoy grew up an avid, starry-eyed Ranger fan, sitting in the MSG stands dreaming about one day being the kid who knocked in pucks from the point. He was living the dream at age 22, in his 174th regular-season game.

“Oh, man . . . a long time ago, maybe Brian Leetch, I looked up to him,” said McAvoy, reflecting on which Blue Shirts he watched with envy as a kid. “More recently . . . I don’t think any of them are here anymore. Maybe [Ryan] McDonagh [now in Tampa], he was there when I was in my early teens.”

Nearly a decade later, noted McAvoy, his perspective has changed — part and parcel with signing his new deal last summer with a payout just short of $15 million over three years. He is Boston’s franchise D-man in waiting, and finally is scoring to meet the billing (three strikes in nine games).

Bruins acquire Ondrej Kase from Ducks

  Bruins acquire Ondrej Kase from Ducks The Boston Bruins have acquired forward Ondrej Kase from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward David Backes, defenseman Axel Andersson, and a 2020 first-round pick, the team announced Friday. Boston will retain 25% of Backes' salary as a part of the deal. The Ducks selected Kase in the seventh round of the 2014 draft. The 24-year-old has appeared in 198 NHL games, amassing 43 goals and 96 points. The winger notched seven goals and 16 assists in 49 contests with Anaheim this season.Backes, 35, has struggled to find his way into Boston's lineup this season. He's appeared in 16 games while tallying one goal and two assists.

“I think I have kind of an approach now where I am just grateful for it,” he said about returning to what was once his home turf. “Just having gratitude for being able to play this game and live my dream — this is just a special kind of reminder when I get to come here and play.”

Coyles — of the East Weymouth, Mass., Coyles — jumped it to 2-0 when he managed a puck out of a pack near his defensive blue line and raced up ice to bury a doorstep forehander. It was his 14th this season, his fifth since the bye break, tying him with Pastrnak for the team lead in that span of nine games. The goal came with Marchand in the penalty box for a cross–check on ex-Bruins prospect Ryan Lindgren.

“A bobbled puck, and I just made a decision to go,” said Cassidy, crediting Brandon Carlo and Wagner for providing backchecking pressure that popped the puck free. “I got a bounce . . . and then got another bounce [on the goal].”

Zibanejad wired his in from long distance, the only one out of 26 shots that Jaro Halak (15-6-6) didn’t stop. Then with Georgiev pulled for the final 1:25, Bergeron slipped No. 26 into an empty net with 13 seconds to go.

The lights were out on Broadway. Next stop, Edmonton, the open prairie of Alberta, where Stanley Cups once oozed out of the ground like black gold.

BOX SCORE: BRUINS 4, STARS 3"Nick was much better than the other night," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.

Then after Denis Gurianov cut the deficit to one early in the third, Ritchie fed David Pastrnak in the slot to again make it a two-goal game.
