Rangers ride five-goal 3rd to victory
NEW YORK (AP) -- Anthony Duclair scored his first NHL goal with 3:48 remaining, and Mats Zuccarello put the Rangers ahead 37 seconds later as New York stormed back from a three-goal deficit by scoring five times in the third period to stun the Minnesota Wild 5-4 Monday night.
The Wild appeared to be in complete control when they carried a 3-0 lead into the third and held a 24-8 shots advantage, but Darcy Kuemper -- who had allowed only four goals this season -- was rocked for five in less than a period.
Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein started the comeback at 2:52 and Rick Nash made it 3-2 at 4:48, but Jason Zucker restored the Wild's two-goal lead 47 seconds later.
New York was still undeterred, and Derick Brassard made it a one-goal game again at 7:54. The 19-year-old Duclair, playing his seventh NHL game, got the Rangers back within a goal, setting up Zuccarello's winner.
