Rangers handle Hurricanes in Game 4 to even win playoff series

Now everything is balanced.

The Rangers leveled their second-round playoff series with the Hurricanes Tuesday night with a 4-1 win in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden.

Frank Vatrano opened the scoring with a 13:31 goal from the power play in the first half, a lead the Blueshirts later doubled to 2:12 when Adam Fox deflected Ryan Lindgren’s shot past Hurricanes goaltender Antti Raanta.

Mika Zibanejad took a 3-0 lead late in the second minute when Raanta Lindgren’s shot failed to corral out of the slot, leaving it in the crease for the center to intervene.

Igor Shesterkin kept Carolina’s offense in check and stopped 30 shots – his only blemish on the night, which came early in the third when Teuvo Teravainen covered one from close range early in the third.

Andrew Copp ended Rangers’ goal for the night by smashing the puck past Raanta, scoring his third point at 8:50 in the third.

The teams meet Thursday for Game 5 in Raleigh and look for the advantage in the series.
