GAME 5

SERIES

The Knights' Corey Perry overtook the Rangers' Michael Richards for the playoff scoring race with a three-assist performance.

Perry, who won the regular season scoring title with 130 points, including 47 goals, has 29 points, including nine goals, in 13 postseason games.

He was stopped on a third-period breakaway by Rangers goalie Eric Pfligler.

Richards, who played with Perry and Knights captain Danny Syvret on the gold-medal winning Canadian junior team, finishes the playoffs with 28 points, including 11 goals, in 15 games.

Richards had no points last night as he appeared to wear down with the Knights checking him better than any of the Rangers' other two playoff opponents.

Drew Larman, who the Knights acquired from the Sarnia Sting in October, shadowed Richards the last two games with Brandon Prust suspended.
