The Rangers, who had lost three straight, stormed Dwayne Roloson from the opening faceoff and scored three times in first nine minutes. Artem Anisimov fired in a loose puck for his 11th of the year at 3:12, Marian Gaborik lifted one past Roloson off a Brandon Dubinsky pass while being knocked down in front at 5:25, and Michael Del Zotto, pinching in on a power play, zipped in a high wrister from the right side at 8:30.
