    Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle collides with Lightning right winger Nikita Kucherov during the first period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final.

    Dominic Moore scored with 2:25 to play and the New York Rangers defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 Saturday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

    The game-winning goal came just 30 seconds after Moore stepped out of the penalty box, and it capped another nail-biter for the Rangers, who have played 15 consecutive one-goal games in the postseason.

    Derek Stepan, who scored the Game 7 winner against Washington on Wednesday night, also scored and Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves.

    Ondrej Palat tied the game on a power-play goal early in the third period. Ben Bishop had 28 saves for the Lightning in losing to New York for the first time in nine games.

    Game 2 will be played at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.
