May 21, 2013 at 11:00 PM

NEW YORK, May 21 (UPI) -- Johnny Boychuk and Daniel Paille each scored a third-period goal Tuesday, rallying Boston over New York 2-1 for a 3-0 conference semifinal series lead.

The Bruins were trailing 1-0 three minutes into the final frame when Boychuk's snap shot from above the right circle found its way through traffic and into the net for the equalizer.

Then with 3 1/2 minutes left in regulation, Rangers goalie Hendrik Lundqvist lost sight of the puck after stopping a Shawn Thornton shot and Paille batted in the loose disc for the decisive tally.

Tuukka Rask turned aside 23-of-24 shots for Boston, which will seek to sweep the series in Thursday's Game 4 at Madison Square Garden.

Taylor Pyatt a scored and Lundqvist finished with 32 saves for the Rangers.
