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.
