Lundqvist stopped the next three San Jose shooters, making saves on 5-of-6 in all, to enable Dubinsky’s game-winning wrister.
San Jose got on the board with 7:30 left in the opening period, during a power play. Clowe one-timed Logan Couture’s pass from above the right circle, and the puck got past a Rangers defender before sailing over Lundqvist.
Later in the period, Christensen sneaked through the San Jose defense for a quick one-timer from the front edge of the crease, tying the game with 3:03 left.
Sauer got off a successful wrister from the slot 1:16 into the second period, despite hitting Clowe’s skates during his follow-through.
Eager, though, tipped in Torrey Mitchell’s blast from the left point, making it a 2-2 game with 3:34 remaining in the middle frame.
Niemi needed to make only three saves in the third period, while Lundqvist stopped 12 shots before turning aside three in overtime.
The Rangers return home to host the Islanders on Tuesday.
