The New York Rangers took the lead twice over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night, but both times the Wild responded, scoring on their only two power play opportunities of the game. But Minnesota had no answer for Ruslan Fedotenko's goal with under seven minutes to play, giving the Rangers a 3-2 win.
Brian Boyle scored off an assist by Brandon Dubinsky to put the Rangers up 1-0 midway through the first period. Kyle Brodziak tied the game again three minutes into the second, however. Marian Gaborik notched his 38th tally of the year eight minutes into the second, but four minutes later Mikko Koivu was there to tie the game again going into the final period.
Henrik Lundqvist faced 26 shots against and turned back 24. On the other end of the ice, Josh Harding made 29 saves on 32 shots faced. The Rangers remain on the road Wednesday, facing the Winnipeg Jets. New York then returns home Friday to close out the week against the Montreal Canadiens.
