BY foxsports • February 4, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) Derick Brassard set up the tying goal and scored the game-winner early in the third period as the New York Rangers rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat the struggling Minnesota Wild 4-2 on Thursday night.

Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh and streaking J.T. Miller each had a goal and an assist as New York stretched its winning streak at Madison Square Garden to four games. Henrik Lundqvist made 16 saves, including two third-period stops on Marco Scandella after the Rangers took the lead. Chris Kreider added an empty-net goal with 1:48 to play

Ryan Carter and Matt Dumba scored for the Wild, who lost their second straight after the All-Star break and fell to 1-8-1 in their last 10.
