RANGERS USE SPECIAL TEAMS TO POST 3-1 WIN OVER PENGUINS

NEW YORK – The New York Rangers failed to score an even-strength goal, but managed to post a 3-1 win over the Penguins on Wednesday.

Steve Rucchin intercepted a pass and broke in alone on Marc-Andre Fleury. He beat Fleury for a short-handed goal to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead 4:05 into the game.

On his 38th birthday, Mark Recchi tied the contest with a power-play goal with 9.4 seconds remaining on the clock. He went end-to-end, split two Rangers and slipped a shot past Henrik Lundqvist. Fleury picked up the assist on the play, his first NHL point.

Michal Rozsival gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead with a power-play goal 10:33 into the second period. The former Penguin has scored three of his four goals this season against Pittsburgh.

Fleury robbed Martin Straka with a quick glove save 4:54 into the third period.

Petr Sykora banged in a rebound on the power play to boost New York’s lead to 3-1 at 9:51 in the third period.

The Penguins have now scored one even-strength goal in their last 280:02 against the Rangers – nearly five full games.

ICE CHIPS: Josef Melichar and Ric Jackman were the Penguins’ healthy scratches.
