NEW YORK — K’Andre Miller, Alexis Lafrenière and Chris Kreider scored in the third period as the New York Rangers rallied to beat the St. Louis Blues 6-4 on Monday night.

Vincent Trochek had a goal and an assist, and Braden Schneider and Adam Fox also scored for the Rangers, who won for the second time in seven games (2-4-1) and snapped a four-game skid (0-3-1) at home. Artemi Panarin had two assists, Lafrenière added one and Igor Shesterkin made 25 saves.

Jordan Kyrou had a goal and an assist, and Pavel Buchnevich, Vladimir Tarasenko and Ryan O’Reilly also scored for the Blues, who have lost 6 of 7 since a seven-game winning streak. Jordan Binnington had 18 saves.

St. Louis led 4-3 entering the third period before Miller tied it with his first goal of the season at 4:48.

Lafrenière’s go-ahead goal came at 8:16 as he tipped a long shot by Mika Zibanejad past Binnington for his fourth.

After Trocheck took at hooking penalty with 6:21 remaining, Kreider scored on a short-handed breakaway 25 seconds later. Kreider’s 13th goal of the season sparked a loud celebration of relief from the crowd at Madison Square Garden, where the Rangers had squandering leads in three of the four defeats.


The Blues had won all seven games this season when leading after two periods this season.

FLYERS 5, AVALANCHE 3: Tony DeAngelo and Owen Tippett scored on the power play, and Philadelphia held on to beat visiting Colorado.

Tanner Laczynski, Travis Sanheim and Travis Konecny also scored for the Flyers, who won for just the second time in 14 games (2-9-3). Carter Hart finished with 29 saves.

Alex Newhook had two goals and Mikko Rantanen also scored for the defending Stanley Cup champion Avalanche, who lost another player to injury when leading scorer Nathan MacKinnon was hurt in the first period. Alexandar Georgiev had 29 saves.

Rantanen and Newhook scored 36 seconds apart late in the third period to pull the Avalanche within a goal before Konecny’s empty-netter sealed it for Philadelphia.
