Rangers rally from early hole grab lead

  • NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers were running out of time to make anything out of the longest Lawrence Taylor Jersey homestand in team history.The first seven games of the nine-game Madison Square Garden stay produced one win and only four of a po sible 14 points for the Rangers, who seemingly lost their way in front of goalie Henrik Lundqvist.Enter backup Cam Talbot, who got the rare start and kept all but one puck out.Carl Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey Hagelin and Mats Zuccarello scored second-period goals, and Talbot made 24 saves in the Rangers' 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.Talbot allowed the first goal but was steady the rest of the way in relief of the struggling Lundqvist, who started the previous eight games and allowed at least three goals in the last seven outings."We owed the fans this one," Talbot said. "They've been supporting us quite a bit lately, and we haven't really produced for them."Benoit DJ Fluker Jersey Pouliot tied it in the first period, Chris Kreider added a goal in the third, and Derick Bra sard had two a sists. Kreider made it 4-1 with 7:14 remaining."Probably our best game all year when it comes to playing a full 60 minutes and everyone contributing," Hagelin said. "We definitely needed one of these just to feel good about ourselves."New York improved to 2-4-2 on the homestand that concludes Monday against Toronto."There is not a whole lot of Devon Kennard Jersey time to think about it," Talbot said. "Just go out there and try to carry this game into tomorrow."
