NEW YORK, N.Y. - Kevin Klein, bloodied earlier by a high stick to the ear, ripped in a slap shot 3:45 into overtime to give the New York Rangers a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night.

Klein, a defenceman showing off his offensive skills recently, scored for the second straight game and for the sixth time this season. He rescued the Rangers, who blew a 3-1 lead late in the third period when Pittsburgh scored twice in 24 seconds to tie it.

Rick Nash broke a second-period tie with his sixth goal in eight games, and Henrik Lundqvist returned to the net with 32 saves for New York.
