Kings Edge Rangers in OT, 4-3

Adrian Kempe scored the game-tying goal with 59 seconds remaining in regulation, and Tyler Toffoli scored just 25 seconds into overtime, as the Los Angeles Kings came-from-behind to beat the Rangers, 4-3, Monday night at The Garden. The Rangers have now lost three of their last four games.

Toffoli’s game-winner came moments after Mika Zibanejad hit the post at the other end.

The Blueshirts led 1-0, 2-1, and then led 3-2 with 10:45 to play, on Adam McQuaid‘s 1st goal as a Ranger. McQuaid’s wrist shot from just inside the blue line beat Jonathan Quick, a most unexpected goal from an unlikely source.

Chris Kreider [8:32 into the 1st period] and Zibanejad [just 32 seconds into the 2nd period] scored the other New York goals. Zibanejad finished with a goal and an assist and now has 52 points in 52 games this season.

Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.

The Rangers [now 22-22-8, 52 pts] host the Bruins Wednesday night at The Garden.
