NEW YORK: Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season and Ryan Callahan added his first since returning from a broken thumb as the New York Rangers matched a season high in goals with a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.
Pittsburgh had won four straight and defeated New York eight times in nine meetings, but Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan scored 1:05 apart late in the first period to put the Rangers ahead. Boyle and Callahan connected within a 2:28 span of the second to send New York to its fourth win in five games.
Derick Brassard made it 5-1 at 9:57 of the third, and Brad Richards had two assists for New York, which rebounded from a 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Monday and completed a 3-1 homestand. Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves.- -
Blackhawks 4, Jets
Captain Jonathan Toews and right wing Patrick Kane scored in the closing minutes of the first period and rookie center Brandon Pirri gave Chicago a 3-0 lead as the Blackhawks (10-2-4) beat the Jets.
It was their fourth win in five games and the Blackhawks are 7-1-3 in their last 11.
Winnipeg (6-9-2) dropped their third game in the past six and fell to 3-6-2 in their past 11 contests.
Ducks 5, Coyotes 2: Right winger Corey Perry’s goal with two seconds remaining in the second period was the turning point as the Anaheim Ducks rallied for a victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.
Perry’s goal broke a 2-2 tie and was his team-leading 10th of the season.
Defenseman Cam Fowler added a third-period goal and center Andrew Cogliano capped the scoring with an empty-netter in the final minute for the Ducks (13-3-1), who snapped the Coyotes’ (11-4-2) five-game winning streak.
Anaheim has won six of its past seven games.
Predators 6, Avalanche 4: Center Colin Wilson scored two goals and added two assists and left winger Viktor Stalberg scored a goal and an assist as the Nashville Predators prevented Colorado from joining NHL history.
The Avalanche (12-2) fell a game short of matching the 2007-08 Ottawa Senators and set a franchise record for the best 14-game start in league history.
