The Bruins lost to the Rangers for the third time this season, dropping a 4-3 contest Sunday at Madison Square Garden.
The B's made two comebacks in the game, erasing two-goal and one-goal Rangers leads, but a Derek Stepan goal less than a minute after the B's tied it in the third gave New York the lead for good.
The Rangers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 6:15 thanks to goals from Anton Stralman and Carl Hagelin. After the B's tied it on goals from Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron, Marian Gaborik scored his 32nd of the season to make it 3-2 in the third period. David Krejci tied the game with his fourth goal in his last three games, but Stepan made it 4-3 just 39 seconds later.
Caron played perhaps his best game as a member of the Bruins, as the 2009 first-round pick forced a pair of turnovers leading to Bruins goals and had his first career multipoint game. Caron assisted Pouliot's first-period goal and scored an unassisted goal in the second period.
Tim Thomas allowed four goals on 17 shots, while Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves on the day.
The B's will face the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
