Dan Boyle had a goal and an assist, Cam Talbot made 28 saves and the New York Rangers held off the Los Angeles Kings for a 4-3 victory Thursday night in a rematch of last year's Stanley Cup finals.

Kevin Klein, Lee Stempniak and Martin St. Louis scored in a 5:46 span of the second period for the Rangers, who erased an early two-goal deficit and completed a Southern California sweep with their 12th win in 13 games overall.

Justin Williams scored two goals for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who returned from a four-day break with an inconsistent defensive effort.

Jonathan Quick stopped 22 shots, but his teammates struggled to keep up with the Rangers' speed and precision for parts of Los Angeles' fourth loss in five games.
