Facing a 3-2 deficit, Derek Stepan (2-1-3) tied the game with 27.5 seconds left in regulation and potted the overtime-winner with 49.6 seconds remaining in extra time to power the New York Rangers to a 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Rangers, who have won four straight games, are 51-21-7 (109 points) and moved two points ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks (50-23-7, 107 points) for the top spot in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy.

* The 51 wins and 109 standings points are tied for the second-highest single-season totals in Rangers history; they also registered 51 wins in 2011-12 and earned 109 standings points in 1970-71, 1971-72 and 2011-12. The only season in which the Rangers earned more than 51 victories and 109 standings points was 1993-94 (52-24-8, 112 points).

* The Rangers have earned at least 25 wins at home (25-10-5) and on the road (26-11-2) in the same season for the first time.
