Hagelin's 2 goals power Rangers to win

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 07, 2013
Carl Hagelin scored two goals -- one thanks to an opposing player -- and Cam Talbot made 32 saves Thursday night to lead the New York Rangers past Columbus 4-2, extending the Blue Jackets' losing streak to five games. Rangers captain Ryan Callahan and defenseman Ryan McDonagh each added a goal and an assist. Ex-Ranger Fedor Tyutin scored his first of the season and rookie Ryan Murray also had a goal for the Blue Jackets, who lost despite several highlight-reel stops among 30 saves by Sergei Bobrovsky. There were plenty of familiar faces on both sides - four players on each team used to play for the other one. The Rangers won for the fifth time in their last six games. Talbot was the third straight backup goalie to face the Blue Jackets. All three have won, combining to give up just three goals. Talbot made several solid saves in the scoreless third period, stymieing former Ranger Artem Anisimov on a backhander in the crease on a power play in the final minutes. A wild second period saw the Rangers score two of three goals - one when a Blue Jackets player put the puck in his own net. At the 4:17 mark, with the Rangers on a power play, McDonagh's hard shot from the point was redirected twice. First it glanced off Mats Zuccarello before it ricocheted into the net off a redirect by Callahan. New York made it 3-1 at 12:44 on a fluke. Columbus forward Mark Letestu tried to clear the puck from the left corner but instead he lost control of it and pushed it past Bobrovsky from a hard angle. The goal was awarded to Hagelin. Columbus cut the deficit to a goal less than a minute later. After taking a pass from James Wisniewski, rookie defenseman Ryan Murray faked a shot until a defender trying to block it slid past, then fired the puck from the top of the right circle for his second career goal. Murray was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft. Bobrovsky made several spectacular stops, including on a breakaway by Brian Boyle. In the opening 90 seconds of the second period, Bobrovsky made three big saves -- one on Brad Richards, who came in 1-on-1 after a turnover -- and then two against Zuccarello on one rush. Bobrovsky also was sprawled on his stomach when he gloved a backhander by Derek Stepan. The Rangers got on the board first on a nifty cross-ice setup by Richards. On a rush, he slid the puck to Callahan on the right wing, who then fed Hagelin behind the defense. All he had to do was put his stick blade on the ice and tap it in at the 4:16 mark. Hagelin has four goals this season and points in his last four games (four goals, two assists). The Blue Jackets mustered almost no offense on the lone power play in the first period but got the equalizer late - on a goal created by and scored by former Rangers. Brandon Dubinsky passed to Tyutin in the high slot. He deked and held the puck as Hagelin slid by while trying to block a shot or pass. Tyutin then pulled the puck back and wristed a shot that appeared to go through the legs of defenseman Dan Girardi. NOTES: Before the season, the game was expected to mark the return of former Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash, but he's missed the last 13 games with a concussion. ... Tyutin's goal gave him sole possession of eighth place in Blue Jackets scoring (146 points). The goal also tied him with Vladimir Konstantinov for ninth place in NHL history among Russian-born defensemen (48). ... The Blue Jackets haven't led since early in the second period against Anaheim on Oct. 27 - almost 280 minutes of ice time.
