NHL.com @NHL

RALEIGH, N.C. - Derek Stepan scored on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:45 left in the game to give the New York Rangers a 4-2 win over Carolina on Friday night.

Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh scored earlier for the Rangers, who beat Carolina for the 10th straight time, and Carl Hagelin added an empty-netter with 41 seconds to go.

Carolina took a pair of delay-of-game penalties in the final five minutes to give New York the two-man advantage. Stepan was set up for a short shot by Martin St. Louis, who played his second game with the Rangers since being acquired from Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Jeff Skinner scored on a penalty shot in the third period to give Carolina a 2-1 lead. Jordan Staal scored his 12th goal of the season for Carolina's 1-0 lead in the opening period, but McDonagh tied it with New York short-handed.
