Late goal does in Rangers

Hartford Courant - - Sports - As­so­ci­ated Press

DETROIT — Dy­lan Larkin scored with 5.1 sec­onds re­main­ing in over­time, capping an im­pres­sive late come­back by the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 vic­tory over the NewYork Rangers on Fri­day night.

An­dreas Athana­siou, who had tied the game with 2:02 re­main­ing in the third pe­riod, back­handed a pass to Larkin, who redi­rected the puck past Hen­rik Lundqvist for his sev­enth goal of the sea­son. The Rangers led 2-0 af­ter two pe­ri­ods but had their four-game win­ning streak snapped.

Detroit has won five of six af­ter win­ning just one of its first 10 games.

Kevin Shat­tenkirk and Neal Pionk scored 40 sec­onds apart dur­ing an extended New York power play late in the sec­ond pe­riod, but Justin Ab­delka­der be­gan the Detroit rally with a goal early in the third.

Lundqvist re­mained a win be­hind Hall of Famer Jac­ques Plante for sev­enth place on the ca­reer list.

The Rangers scored twice while Detroit’s Ja­cob de la Rose was serv­ing a dou­ble-mi­nor for high-stick­ing. Shat­tenkirk beat goalie Jimmy Howard with a wrist shot from the top of the left cir­cle. Then, with de la Rose still in the box, Pionk’s perime­ter shot ap­peared to de­flect off a Detroit player on its way in.

Lundqvist’s bid for his first shutout in nearly a year ended with 18:14 left in the third. Gus­tav Nyquist took the puck from Rangers de­fense­man Bren­dan Smith and fed Ab­delka­der.
