Having cut the point deficit, Peter Burling and Emirates Team New Zealand set about building on the momentum of victory in the first race by again beating Jimmy Spithill's ORACLE TEAM USA away from the start line.
Team New Zealand needs four wins, Oracle TeamUSA seven.
Australian Spithill's Oracle team now faces an uphill battle to win the 35th edition of the competition, where the trophy is earned by the first team to reach seven points.
And while other observers said the two wins gave New Zealand a significant psychological boost, Mr Unflappable, helmsman Peter Burling, kept it typically understated: "It felt like our boat was going really fast, which is really pleasing".
But the Americans aren't to be ruled out of proceedings given their tag as favorites to secure a third straight title.
He's part of the massive Team New Zealand overhaul that followed that crushing reversal.
After going into the competition one point down, the New Zealanders needed to win eight races to win the America's Cup, the world's oldest global sporting competition.
Team NZ skipper Glenn Ashby said while the crew would like be back in the water tomorrow keeping the momentum up, they had targeted these next five days in the schedule for upgrades to the boat and finetuning work. "But we're also a very candid group and it's quite clear we need to make changes".

Doctors: Scalise remains critical, but 'excellent recovery' possible
Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement Saturday evening. On Thursday, the hospital reiterated that Scalise will need more operations and will be in the hospital "for some time".
There are strict limits on how many foils each team can produce, and the Kiwi design requires extra control systems for the heavy canting seen on their boat, so replicating this would be a major feat of engineering in a very short timescale.
They also snapped a 10-race losing streak to Oracle, including eight at the end of the 2013 regatta and two in the round-robins this year.
"We've made it no secret we're here to try to win the America's Cup", said the 26-year-old Burling.
We tidied up a lot of those little errors we made yesterday around the course and I think that really showed.
In relatively light winds, Burling continued to sail smoothly, extending the Kiwis' advantage to a healthy margin of one minute and 52 seconds over their rivals by the fifth gate.
Spithill vowed that from today to Friday the entire U.S. team - from boat builders, designers, engineers and crew - would be working round the clock in a bid to catch up. He has won Olympic gold and silver medals with grinder Blair Tuke.
The always-innovative Kiwis are using a "cyclor" grinding system.
