Rangers Calm Hurricanes, 6-2, as Zibanejad Has 4 Points

Mika Zibanejad had two goals and two assists, one of a trio of Rangers to score twice, as the Blueshirts beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 6-2, Tuesday night at The Garden. Pavel Buchnevich scored a pair of power-play goals, and Anthony DeAngelo scored his 3rd and 4th of the season.

The Rangers have now beaten the Hurricanes at The Garden 16 straight times.

Coming on the heels of Sunday afternoon’s clunky 7-5 loss to Columbus, the Blueshirts played one of their strongest games of the season, playing solid hockey in both ends of the ice.

Saku Maenalanen had both Carolina goals.

Mats Zuccarello had three assists. Chris Kreider and Boo Nieves each had two assists. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 of 36 shots to get the win.

The Rangers [now 19-20-7, 45 pts] host the Blackhawks Thursday night at The Garden.
