Richard Park scored the go-ahead goal 2:23 into the third period, Evgeni Malkin padded the lead with two, and Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

Park finished a crisp, three-way passing play with Matt Cooke and Deryk Engelland that worked right-to-left across the Rangers zone, and beat Henrik Lundqvist with a shot inside the left post.

Malkin scored with 12:50 remaining to make it 3-1, turning a giveaway by Marc Staal into a backhander under the crossbar, and added an empty-netter with 1:40 left. Chris Kunitz gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead in the first period.

Carl Hagelin scored New York’s lone goal, and Lundqvist made 32 saves for the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers.
