Jagr, Shannahan score as Rangers even second-round series with Sabres

Jaromir Jagr and Brendan Shanahan scored power-play goals, and Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves to lift the New York Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, tying the Eastern Conference semifinal series after four games.

The best-of-seven matchup now shifts back to Buffalo, where the Sabres - the NHL's best team in the regular season - took what seemed to be a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Now they will be feeling the heat from a nervous, title-starved town unwilling to accept anything less than the first Stanley Cup title in franchise history.

Game 5 is Friday night, with Game 6 back in New York on Sunday.

The Rangers had to survive a video replay on a late save by Lundqvist that the Sabres felt didn't keep the puck out of the net.
