Captain Ryan Callahan celebrated his 27th birthday in style by scoring 2:42 into overtime as the host New York Rangers handed Original Six rival Detroit its season high-tying sixth straight loss 2-1 on Wednesday. Brad Richards netted a power-play goal for his 15th point in March and All-Star Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 26 shots for the Rangers, who moved three points clear of idle Pittsburgh atop both the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference standings.
