RANGERS 7, DEVILS 3

NEW YORK • After sun reflecting off the ice delayed the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Rangers and pinstriped goalie Henrik Lundqvist beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in snow and cold Sunday.

Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the Rangers used a four-goal second period against Martin Brodeur to take the lead for good.

After Dominic Moore and Marc Staal had goals in the first for the Rangers, Mats Zuccarello scored two straight to put New York ahead for the first time. Carl Hagelin and Nash found the net, too.

Lundqvist, who sported stylish pinstriped pads for the occasion, stumbled through a difficult first but settled down and made 19 saves.

Jaromir Jagr had two assists to excite the large number of New Jersey fans who made the trek to the Bronx for what was nominally a Devils home game.

PANTHERS 5, RED WINGS 4, SO

DETROIT • Nick Bjugstad scored in a shootout and Tim Thomas denied Detroit three times, lifting the Panthers to a win over the Red Wings after trailing by two goals twice in regulation.

Brad Boyes scored a game-tying, short-handed goal with 3:46 left in the third period a couple minutes after teammate Drew Shore scored.

Detroit’s Gustav Nyquist and Daniel Alfredsson scored 1:19 apart midway through the second and Riley Sheahan had a goal late in the second period.

Jonas Gustavsson, filling in for the injured Jimmy Howard, had 33 saves in his third straight start for the Red Wings.

Thomas stopped 26 shots.

JETS 3, BLACKHAWKS 1

CHICAGO • Al Montoya made 34 saves, Andrew Ladd scored his 150th goal and the Jets rallied to beat the slumping Blackhawks.

Blake Wheeler had two third-period goals as Winnipeg won for the second straight day and improved to 6-1 under new coach Paul Maurice.

Brandon Bollig scored in the first for the Blackhawks, and Corey Crawford had 18 saves.

Montoya was terrific while subbing for Ondrej Pavelec, who had started the last eight games for Winnipeg. The Chicago native shut down the Blackhawks after an early gaffe put the Jets into a 1-0 hole.

CANUCKS 5, COYOTES 4, OT
