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.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
