Video: Miller starts Rangers scoring spree seconds after spectacular Bishop save

J.T. Miller got it all started.

The 22-year-old Miller scored his first goal of the post-season -- and first career Stanley Cup playoff goal -- to give the New York Rangers a 3-1 lead early in the third period, seconds after Ben Bishop made an absolutely spectacular save. But Bishop couldn’t get back into position, and Miller buried the quick pass out front from Derick Brassard.

That was the first of five New York goals in the third period. The Rangers forced a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Final with a 7-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.
