Fast, Lundqvist spur Rangers to victory

NEW YORK — Jesper Fast scored on a deflection in front with 1:42 to play and the Rangers rallied to beat the Bruins 2-1 on Monday night.

Derick Brassard also scored in the third period and Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist had 32 saves, one a highlight-reel stop on Max Talbot, as New York beat Boston for only the fourth time in 12 meetings (4-8).

Jimmy Hayes scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask had 28 saves.

Boston is 2-6-1 in its past nine games.

It marked the first time this season the Rangers have overcome a deficit at the start of the third and won in regulation. They were 0-11-2 coming in.

Lundqvist kept the score tied with a magnificent save on Talbot shortly after Brassard evened the score early in the third.

Around the league: Robyn Regehr, a defenseman who played 11 seasons in Calgary, signed so he could retire as a Flame. Regehr, 35, played 15 NHL seasons and won a Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2014. He has not played this season. … Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his left foot. … Sabres defenseman Mark Pysyk rejoined the team after completing a conditioning assignment in the minors with AHL Rochester. He had missed 22 games with a lower-body injury.

    Tonight: at Yankees

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.

  3. Jones: Alex Cobb proves again why he's Rays' stopper, no matter how long he's here

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  4. Twice the talent: IMG football expands to two teams this fall

    Footballpreps

    BRADENTON — When IMG Academy fielded its first varsity football team in 2013, there were 51 players on the roster. Since then, the roster has nearly tripled. With no junior varsity it was difficult for some to find playing time, and players do not come to IMG to sit the bench.

    The solution? Start another …
