Monday's NHL Capsules

NHL.com @NHL

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Anthony Duclair scored his first NHL goal with 3:48 remaining, Mats Zuccarello put the Rangers ahead 37 seconds later and New York stormed back from a three-goal deficit by scoring five times in the third period to stun the Minnesota Wild 5-4 Monday night.

The Wild appeared to be in complete control when they carried a 3-0 lead into the third and held a 24-8 shots advantage, but Darcy Kuemper ? who had allowed only four goals this season ? was rocked for five in less than a period.

Rangers defenceman Kevin Klein started the comeback at 2:52. Rick Nash made it 3-2 at 4:48, but Jason Zucker restored the Wild's two-goal lead 47 seconds later.

Derick Brassard made it a one-goal game again at 7:54. The 19-year-old Duclair, playing his seventh NHL game, tied it before Zuccarello scored the winner.

Nate Prosser, Matt Cooke and Jason Pominville scored second-period goals for the Wild, who held a 30-20 shots advantage but had their two-game winning streak snapped.

Rangers forward Chris Kreider and defenceman John Moore could be facing supplemental discipline from the NHL for separate hits that led to the ejection of both players.

OILERS 3, CANADIENS 0

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) ??? Ben Scrivens made 29 saves in his seventh career shutout, and Benoit Pouliot had a goal and an assist to lead Edmonton over Montreal.
