John Mitchell and Brad Richards scored 90 seconds apart in New York’s four-goal second period, and the Rangers held on to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Tuesday night for their third consecutive win.

Ryan Callahan and Marian Gaborik both had a goal and assist in the period, and Richards added two assists as New York won its seventh straight at home and 10th in 12 games overall.

The four goals in the period matched a season high, done three previous times — including twice in three games.

Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves for his 10th win in 17 outings. Sidney Crosby helped set up James Neal’s first-period goal that gave Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead and assisted on Pascal Dupuis’ goal that made it 4-3 early in the third.
