NEW YORK -- New York Rangers coach John Tortorella has little patience for mistakes and a big one by leading scorer Marian Gaborik on the tying goal got him an extended stay on the bench in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Gaborik was benched roughly 13 minutes in the Rangers' 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night after making a couple of bad plays on Ryan Carter's goal late in the second period that tied it at 2.

Until that point, the Rangers seemed in control, but the tally by the Devils' fourth-line centre changed the momentum and a deflected goal early in the third period by David Clarkson proved to be the winner as New Jersey evened the series.
