NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers received goals from four different players in a 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 5 of the first round playoff on Sunday.
Centers Dominic Moore and Brad Richards and defenseman Marc Staal provided the Rangers with a 3-0 cushion and forward Brian Boyle added an empty-net goal late in the game.
The Rangers lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Tuesday in Philadelphia.
After the Rangers scored twice in the second period to move ahead 3-0, the Flyers struck late in the second period and early in the third before Boyle scored an empty-netter late in the game to seal the win.
Claude Giroux scored his first goal of the series at 18:21 of the third period with the Flyers employing an extra attacker.
After the Rangers led 3-0, Philadelphia scored with 32 seconds left in the second period when center Vincent Lecavalier scored on the power play from defensemen Mark Streit and Andrew MacDonald.
New York committed three penalties in the second period.
Moore stole the puck from defenseman Hal Gill 30 feet in front of Mason, then flipped a snap-shot for his second goal of the series at 16:20 and a 3-0 Rangers lead.
New York's third line provided the Rangers with a 2-0 edge in the second period. Right wing J.T. Miller's wrist shot was stopped by Mason, who then kicked out left wing Carl Hagelin's rebound before Richards poked in a back-hander at 8:07.
That line has accounted for nine points in the series.
Staal gave the Rangers a 1-0 first-period lead. Left wing Martin St. Louis dropped the puck back to Staal, who fired a wrist shot from the top of the left circle at 11:53. It was Staal's sixth postseason goal in 48 games.
