NEW YORK — Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season and Ryan Callahan his first since returning from a broken thumb as the Rangers matched a season high in goals with a 5-1 victory over the Penguins on Wednesday.
Pittsburgh had won four straight overall and defeated New York eight times among the teams' past nine meetings. But Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan scored 1:05 apart late in the first to put the Rangers ahead. Boyle and Callahan connected within a span of 2:28 in the second to send New York to its fourth win in five games.
Derick Brassard made it 5-1 at 9:57 of the third, and Brad Richards had two assists for New York, which rebounded from a 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Monday and completed a 3-1 homestand. Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves for it.
Kris Letang's power-play goal pulled the Penguins to 3-1 with 5:26 left in the second, but Callahan's fourth of the season — in his second game back in the lineup — 1:04 later restored the Rangers' three-goal lead.
Marc-Andre Fleury, who sat out Pittsburgh's 3-0 win at Columbus on Saturday, stopped 20 shots.
The Rangers scored more than three goals for the second time this season. The other time came in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Pittsburgh fell to 4-3 on the road and allowed more than two goals for only the sixth time this season.
Game highlights: Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane scored first-period goals to help the host Blackhawks beat the Jets 4-1. Chicago has won four of five, the only loss coming 3-2 in overtime to Calgary on Sunday. It was the Blackhawks' second convincing victory over the Jets in five days. Chicago won 5-1 in Winnipeg on Saturday.
