NY Islanders Islanders at NY Rangers Rangers - 01/31/2014

NEW YORK (AP) -- Derick Brassard scored the go-ahead goal with 7:46 left in the third period and the New York Rangers used late offense to beat the New York Islanders for the second straight game, 4-1 on Friday night.

With the teams skating 4-on-4 and the Rangers taking advantage of a delayed penalty, Brassard took a cross-zone feed from defenseman Marc Staal and fired a shot past Evgeni Nabokov to give his team a 2-1 lead.

Brad Richards provided insurance with 5:01 remaining, ripping a drive in off Nabokov, and Ryan McDonagh added an empty-net goal with 1 second left.

Staal had two assists and Henrik Lundqvist made 38 saves for the Rangers, who have won three straight and six of eight.
