SUNRISE, Fla. - Rick Nash scored his second goal of the season and Henrik Lundqvist rebounded from a poor game with 31 saves to lift the New York Rangers over the Florida Panthers 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Mats Zuccarello, Brad Richards and Derick Brassard also scored for the Rangers. Carl Hagelin added an empty-net goal with 24 seconds left.

Nick Bjugstad and Scottie Upshall scored in the third period for Florida. Tim Thomas allowed four goals on 21 shots.

After the Panthers scored twice to cut their deficit to one, Zuccarello's power-play goal made it 4-2 with 1:28 left.

The Rangers won for the third time in four games and improved to 3-1 on their five-game road trip. The five goals tied their season high.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
