NEW YORK, N.Y. - Derek Stepan scored twice, including the go-ahead goal in the third period, to lead the New York Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.

Ryan Callahan had a goal and three assists as the Rangers snapped a two-game losing streak, picking up two vital points in their fight to hold onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. New York started the night clinging to eighth place.

Rick Nash also scored for New York and Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.

The Southeast Division-leading Jets got goals from Nik Antropov and Zach Bogosian in their third straight loss. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 31 shots for Winnipeg.
