Wednesday night, the New York Rangers visited the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre. The Rangers were looking to pad their lead as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and did just that with a 4-2 win.
Both teams scored two goals each in the second period. Winnipeg opened the scoring with shots by Spencer Machacek and Bryan Little that got past Henrik Lundqvist within a minute of each other. The Little goal at 4:54 of the second period would be the last for the Jets. The Rangers were able to even things up with a shorthanded goal by Michael Del Zotto at 7:44 and a power play goal by Ryan Callahan at 18:23 that was Callahan's 28th of the season.
With the win, the Rangers now have 105 goals, far outpacing the 93 points of the Boston Bruins, who are in second place in the Eastern Conference.
