Rangers score 3 in 1st period, coast to 4-1 win over Flyers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Daniel Carcillo, Rick Nash and Derick Brassard scored less than 10 minutes into the game, and Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves as the New York Rangers routed the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Sunday night.

Chris Kreider netted his team-leading 12th goal in the second period to help the Rangers win their third straight and fourth in five (4-0-1). New York, 8-2-1 in its last 11, is tied in points with Washington for second place in the Metropolitan Division — one ahead of Philadelphia.

The Rangers have won seven straight against the Flyers at home, outscoring them 28-8.

Ray Emery rebounded after the rough first period and finished with 31 saves for the Flyers.

Lundqvist lost his shutout bid when Mark Streit scored a power-play goal 6:49 into the third.
