tallied third-period goals to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-2 comeback
victory over the New York Islanders in a showdown between the crosstown rivals
from Nassau Coliseum.
Chris Kreider added a power-play goal and Derek Stepan chipped in two assists
to help the Rangers bounce back from Monday's 2-0 loss to visiting Montreal.
Cam Talbot turned aside 22 shots, including all eight he faced in the
third period, to earn his second straight win between the pipes.
