Klein’s OT goal caps Rangers’ comeback win vs. NJ
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Kevin Klein scored 2:42 into overtime, and the New York Rangers rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to beat the New Jersey Devils 4-3 on Tuesday night.
The Rangers, who trailed 3-1, also got goals from Chris Kreider, Chris Mueller and Rick Nash, who netted his NHL-best eighth goal. He scored in all but one of New York’s seven games this season.
On the winner, Mueller and Kreider crisscrossed in the Devils zone before Kreider fed Klein for his first of the season.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 28 shots as the Rangers(4-3) extended their winning streak to three.
The Devils (3-2-1) got power-play goals from Jaromir Jagr, Adam Henrique and Jon Merrill but it wasn’t enough to prevent a third straight defeat. Cory Schneider made 21 saves.
