NEW YORK – Jesper Fast scored on a deflection in front with 1:42 to play and the New York Rangers rallied to beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 on Monday night.
Derick Brassard also scored in the third period and Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves, including a highlight-reel stop on Max Talbot, as the Rangers beat the Bruins for only the fourth time in 12 meetings (4-8).
Jimmy Hayes scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask had 28 saves. Boston is 2-6-1 in its last nine games.
It marked the first time this season the Rangers have overcome a deficit at the start of the third period and won in regulation. They were 0-11-2 entering the game.
Lundqvist kept the game tied with a magnificent save on Talbot shortly after Brassard evened the score early in the third.
This story has been corrected to reflect that the Rangers are 4-8 in their last 12 games against the Bruins, not 3-9.
