Rangers keep up scoring flurry

NEW YORK — J.T. Miller, Jesper Fast and Pavel Buchnevich scored 4:04 apart late in the second period to lead the Rangers over the Jets 5-2 Sunday night for their fifth straight victory.

Kevin Hayes and Mats Zuccarello also scored, Kevin Klein and Brandon Pirri had two assists each, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 24 shots as New York won for the eighth time in nine games. The Rangers, who lead the NHL with 55 goals and average 4.23 per game, have scored at least five in each game of their winning streak.

Patrik Laine and Mark Scheifele scored for Winnipeg, which has lost four of its past five (1-3-1). Connor Hellebuyck started and gave up four goals on 16 shots before he was replaced late in the second period by Michael Hutchinson, who finished with one save.

After a scoreless first half of the second period, in which Winnipeg had a 4-1 advantage on shots, the Rangers outscored the Jets 4-1 over the final 10 minutes.

The Jets controlled play in the scoreless third period, outshooting the Rangers 9-1, but couldn't get anything past Lundqvist.

Laine, selected by Winnipeg with the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft, scored for the second straight game after going without a point in his previous four.

Game highlights: Marian Hossa scored at 4:31 of overtime and the host Blackhawks beat the Stars 4-3 for their sixth straight win. Hossa also had an assist to become the fourth active player with 1,100 career points, joining the Panthers' Jaromir Jagr, the Sharks' Joe Thornton and the Avalanche's Jarome Iginla. … Michael Cammalleri got his first three goals of the season, lifting the Devils over the Hurricanes 4-1 for their first road victory. … Robby Fabbri and Jori Lehtera each scored in the first 3:35 and the host Blues beat the Avalanche 5-1. … Connor McDavid, the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for a go-ahead goal late in the second, giving the Oilers a 2-1 win over the host Red Wings.
