NEW YORK (AP) Derick Brassard scored the go-ahead goal with 7:46 left in the third period and the New York Rangers used late offense to beat the New York Islanders for the second straight game, 4-1 on Friday night.
With the teams skating 4-on-4 and the Rangers taking advantage of a delayed penalty, Brassard took a cross-zone feed from defenseman Marc Staal and fired a shot past Evgeni Nabokov to give his team a 2-1 lead.
Staal had two assists and Henrik Lundqvist made 38 saves for the Rangers, who have won three straight and six of eight.
