RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Ryan McDonagh, Marian Gaborik and Sean Avery scored in a 4:53 span of the second period and the New York Rangers rallied to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Thursday night for their fourth straight win. Ryan Callahan and Michael Sauer had the other goals for the Rangers, who got points from 14 players and earned their 11th win in 13 games. Martin Biron made 28 saves as he made a spot start for No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist. New York remained three points behind Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh, but the Rangers have played four fewer games than the Penguins. Derek Joslin, Jeff Skinner and Jiri Tlutsy scored goals for Carolina, winless in two games under new coach Kirk Muller. Muller replaced the fired Paul Maurice on Monday, and the Hurricanes lost 3-1 to Florida in his debut behind the bench Tuesday night. Cam Ward made 22 saves for the Hurricanes, who have lost five in a row and are last in the Southeast Division. Carolina got off to a good start when Tlutsy scored off a faceoff 35 seconds into the game. Even though the Rangers answered a little more than a minute later, the Hurricanes took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission when Skinner scored on a slap shot with 9 seconds remaining in the period. The Rangers took control of the game with their three quick goals midway through the second. McDonagh struck first when he tied the score at 2 with a wrist shot from the left circle that deflected off of Joslin's stick. Gaborik converted on a 2-on-1 break that Rangers defenseman Jeff Woywitka started with a pass to Artem Anisimov up the ice. Anisimov fed Gaborik, who beat Ward with a wrist shot high on the glove side. Avery gave the Rangers a two-goal lead off a pass from Gaborik. Avery also beat Ward high to the glove side for his third goal this season and second against the Hurricanes. Carolina cut the deficit to 4-3 when Joslin wristed a shot from the blue line that bounced off the stick of New York forward Ruslan Fedotenko and between Biron's legs. Sauer restored the Rangers' two-goal cushion in the third period with a slap shot that beat a screened Ward to the glove side again. NOTES: Carolina added John MacLean to Muller's coaching staff earlier Thursday. . Tuomo Ruutu recorded his 100th assist with the Hurricanes on Joslin's goal. . New York's Brian Boyle and Carolina's Anthony Stewart fought in the third period after Boyle caught Skinner with his head down and checked him into the boards. Stewart got an extra penalty for instigating the fight. ... Avery has three goals in 11 games this season after netting only three in 76 games last season.

Rangers-Hurricanes in review

You know what? That was an imperfect game against a struggling team. OK, given. But that’s a good, good win. That’s a tough game to be the road team, with the coaching change and the feelings of getting the popular coach fired, and the new coaches on the bench. And then a really quick goal by the home team and the place is all pumped up. It’s a tough game because there...
