Rangers Rebound With 3-2 Road Win Over Wild

Oscar Lindberg had a goal and an assist and Antti Raanta made 25 saves for his 15th win of the season, as the Rangers beat the Wild, 3-2, Saturday night in St. Paul.

The Blueshirts, after losing at home to the Panthers Friday, rebounded for the win; it was the 10th time they have won the 2nd game of a back-to-back.

After Eric Staal gave Minnesota at the 12:54 mark of the 1st period, the Rangers tied the game at 16:01 on a goal by Brady Skjei.

Lindberg gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead at 7:46 of the 2nd, taking a pass from J.T. Miller and beating Devan Dubnyk for his 6th goal of the season. Jimmy Vesey pushed the lead to 3-1 at 17:34, off an assist from Lindberg.

Minnesota closed it to 3-2 on a power play goal from MattĀ Dumba 4:51 into the 3rd, but Raanta and the Rangers defense held off the Wild for the win.

The Rangers [now 45-24-3, 93 pts] have only ten games remaining in the regular season. They play the Devils over in Newark Tuesday night.
