TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Henrik Lundqvist had lots of help in another season-saving performance for the New York Rangers.

The star goalie stopped 36 shots and Derick Brassard had a hat trick for the Presidents' Trophy winners, who forced Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals with a 7-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

The Rangers, who overcame a 3-1 series deficit to oust the Washington Capitals in the second round, improved to 4-0 in elimination games this postseason. Lundqvist is 9-1 with his team's season on the line since the start of last year's playoffs, and 15-3 under those circumstances dating back to Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern quarterfinals against Ottawa.
