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.
In the third period, New York took the lead on a Brian Boyle goal at 3:07 and added the insurance at 10:06 on the 17th goal of the season for Derek Stepan, coming on a power play.
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.
