NHL.com @NHL

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dan Boyle scored a deflected goal 8:10 into the third period, Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello added insurance late, and the New York Rangers beat the pesky Florida Panthers 6-3 on Monday night.

Boyle flipped a shot from the left point that hit the stick of veteran Florida defenceman Willie Mitchell and bounded past surprised goalie Roberto Luongo. Zuccarello made it 5-3 with 4:02 left.

Carl Hagelin was stopped by Luongo on a penalty shot with 3:19 remaining to keep it a two-goal game, but Nash scored into an empty net at 18:07.

The Panthers held a 1-0 lead in the first and dug out of a 3-1 hole in the second, but fell to 1-6-1 in their past eight and are eight points out of the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
