NEW YORK -- Derick Brassard and Brian Boyle each finished with four points and Ryane Clowe had three points to lead the New York Rangers to a 6-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night.
The win snapped New York's seven-game losing streak to the Penguins dating back to the 2011-12 season.
Clowe scored two goals. Boyle, Brassard, John Moore and Ryan McDonagh scored one each for the Rangers, while Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.
Pascal Dupuis scored Pittsburgh's only goal. Marc-Andre Fleury allowed all six goals on 39 shots.
The rout began early as Boyle, Clowe and Ryan McDonagh scored goals in a span of 4:18 in the first period.
Boyle tipped a Brad Richards shot past Fleury 10:01 into the game. McDonagh gave the Rangers all the goals they would need when he ripped a drive past Fleury a little more than two minutes later.
Clowe's first of the game -- and the season -- came two minutes later and the Rangers went into the first intermission leading 3-0.
Even with the lead, the Rangers continued to press the attack. Brassard's first goal as a Ranger, just 1:53 into the second, gave New York a 4-0 lead.
Dupuis cut the deficit to 4-1 with a one-timer off a Robert Bortuzzo cross-ice feed at 2:27 of the second. But Clowe's second of the game, at 11:52 of the period, gave New York a 5-1 lead at the second intermission.
John Moore scored his first as a Ranger 9:47 into the third with a slap shot.
Moore, Brassard and Derek Dorsett were acquired as part of a six-player trade that sent Marian Gaborik to Columbus. The Rangers acquired Clowe from San Jose Tuesday night.
NOTES: The Rangers made the biggest splash at the trade deadline sending Marian Gaborik, Steven Delisle and Blake Parlett to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Derek Dorsett and Derick Brassard, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 Draft. Brassard, Moore and Ryane Clowe, whom the Rangers acquired from San Jose Tuesday night, all played. "We let [them] play," Rangers coach John Tortorella said in his pregame news conference. "It's just time to play." ... Pittsburgh acquired Jussi Jokinen from the Carolina Hurricanes for a conditional sixth- or seventh-round draft pick. Jokinen was scratched, as was center Dustin Jeffrey and defenseman Mark Eaton. ... New York sent forwards Chris Kreider and Jesper Fast to AHL Connecticut. ... The Rangers scratched defensemen Matt Gilroy and Roman Hamrlik, and center J.T. Miller. ... The teams will complete the home-and-home Friday night in Pittsburgh.
