New York’s top line had a stellar night. Marian Gaborik also scored and Carl Hagelin had a goal and assisted on both of Richards’ goals as they combined for four goals and nine points.

The Rangers took advantage of a soft part in the schedule to extend their winning streak to two after having dropped three in a row. The wins over the New York Islanders and the Hurricanes, two teams unlikely to make the playoffs, followed a three-game losing streak.

The victory extended the Rangers lead in the Atlantic Division to six points over Pittsburgh.
