NEW YORK (AP) - Brian Boyle scored his first goal of the season and Ryan Callahan added his first since returning from a broken thumb as the New York Rangers matched a season high in goals with a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.
Pittsburgh had won four straight and defeated New York eight times in nine meetings, but Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan scored 1:05 apart late in the first period to put the Rangers ahead. Boyle and Callahan connected within a 2:28 span of the second to send New York to its fourth win in five games.
Derick Brassard made it 5-1 at 9:57 of the third, and Brad Richards had two assists for New York, which completed a 3-1 homestand. Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves.
Kris Letang's power-play goal pulled the Penguins to 3-1 with 5:26 left in the second, but Callahan's fourth of the season - in his second game back in the lineup - restored the Rangers' three-goal lead 1:04 later.
Marc-Andre Fleury, who sat out Pittsburgh's 3-0 win at Columbus on Saturday, stopped 20 shots.
BLACKHAWKS 4, JETS 1
CHICAGO (AP) - Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane scored in the first period to lead Chicago over Winnipeg.

It was the Blackhawks' second convincing victory over the Jets in five days. Chicago won 5-1 in Winnipeg on Saturday.
