Nash breaks tie with late goal, Rangers send Stars to 5th straight loss

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rick Nash snapped a tie with 1:58 left, and the New York Rangers sent the Dallas Stars to their fifth straight loss, 3-2 on Friday night.

Nash poked a rebound of Chris Kreider's shot past Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen to give New York its first lead of the game.

Ryan Callahan and Derick Brassard both erased one-goal deficits, Brad Richards had two assists, and Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves for the Rangers, who improved to 7-2-1 in their past 10 games.

Ryan Garbutt and Cody Eakin both had a goal and assist, but the Stars remained winless in 2014. Lehtonen stopped 31 shots for Dallas, which went 0-3 on its three-game trip through the New York metropolitan area.
