Nash scores 2nd goal, Lundqvist rebounds from poor game to lead Rangers past Panthers 5-2

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.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
