Steve Mason stopped 32 shots for Philadelphia, that mislaid a third straight.
Two nights after a 5-1 detriment to Tampa Bay that manager Alain Vigneault called a “disaster,” a Rangers showed lots of burst early. They took a lead during 5:10 on Klein’s fourth goal. Less than a notation after New York was stopped on an odd-man rush, Carl Hagelin done a frail pass from low in a section to Klein, who scored from a corner of a right circle.
Mason incited aside in-close chances by Martin St. Louis and Chris Kreider, and stood high when Nash crashed into him during a short-handed breakaway in a final 12 seconds of a period.

New York, however, converted on a power-play possibility to make it 2-0 on Nash’s team-leading 13th idea during 7:43 of a second. Derek Stepan sent a tough pass from a left side down to St. Louis in a right circle. St. Louis fast found Nash charging in on a left wing for an easy redirection behind Mason.
Simmonds had another primary event to mutilate Talbot’s shutout bid with a assist of an peculiar rebound off a behind boards. Talbot went behind a net to play a puck, though it never came to him — instead caroming out in front. Simmonds swooped in, though Talbot got behind to a double in time to forestall a shot into an open net with 6:27 left in a second.
Vincent Lecavalier got giveaway in a New York finish and came in alone on Talbot with 3:24 remaining in a center duration usually to have his expostulate snuggle into Talbot’s midsection.
