Rangers Score Late to Beat Wild

Ruslan Fedotenko’s go-ahead goal in the third period gave the New York Rangers a 3-2 victory on Tuesday over the Minnesota Wild and some more space in the tightened Eastern Conference playoff race.

Marian Gaborik also scored, frustrating the fans of his former team, and Brian Boyle had a goal for the Rangers, who won for only the third time in their last nine road games. They’re now 6-6 in their last 12 games.

Kyle Brodziak and Mikko Koivu scored power-play goals for the Wild, but Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was otherwise his normally stellar self.

With 6:23 left, Fedotenko found Wild defenseman Nate Prosser in an awkward position and scored on a pass from Ryan McDonagh that glanced off Wild defenseman Marco Scandella. McDonagh had two assists.
