Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 10:15 PM The Canadian Press

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Benoit Pouliot scored in the seventh round of the shootout, and the New York Rangers won for the time on a long homestand by rallying to beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 on Sunday night.

Pouliot scored the fourth goal of the Rangers' first shootout of the season, and beleaguered goalie Henrik Lundqvist stopped Mikael Backlund to give the Rangers the win. New York is 1-3-1 on its team-record, nine-game homestand.

Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin scored to erase the Rangers' early 2-0 deficit, and Chris Kreider made it 3-3 with 7:53 left in regulation as New York improved to 2-15 in games in which it allowed the first goal.

Lundqvist, who stopped 18 shots through regulation, spread his arms and looked up to the ceiling in relief after the final shootout attempt as he ended his and the Rangers' four-game losing streak (0-3-1).
