PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins used a late surge in a contentious second period to defeat the New York Rangers 4-1 at Consol Energy Center on Thursday.

Following a slow first period, the crowd ignited 6:17 into the second period when Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist dropped his stick and shoved the net off its moorings. Lundqvist was visibly upset after a collision with Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and was called for delay of game, giving Pittsburgh a power play that Penguins forward Phil Kessel cut short with a slashing call 1:09 later.

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist took an unusual delay of game penalty Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

With 13:43 remaining in the second period, Lundqvist was run into by teammate Ryan McDonagh but appeared to think Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist had bumped him. Lundqvist appeared to be shaken up but a whistle was not blown, so the goalie knocked the net off its moorings and received a two-minute delay of game penalty.
