NEW YORK, N.Y. - Carl Hagelin and Mats Zuccarello scored second-period goals, and backup Cam Talbot made 24 saves in the New York Rangers' 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.

Talbot allowed Jason Pominville early goal but was steady the rest of the way in relief of struggling No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who started the previous eight games after signing a long contract extension and allowed at least three goals in the last seven outings.

Benoit Pouliot tied it in the first period, Chris Kreider added a goal in the third, and Derick Brassard had two assists. Kreider made it 4-1 with 7:14 remaining.

New York improved to 2-4-2 on its team-record, nine-game homestand that concludes Monday night against Toronto. Minnesota has lost four of six.

CANUCKS 2, JETS 1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP)—Defenceman Chris Tanev broke a tie in the third period and Vancouver beat Winnipeg after Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo left early because of an injury.

Luongo left with 3:30 remaining in the first period. Earlier, Luongo had his leg clipped by big Winnipeg defenceman Dustin Byfuglien, and was knocked flat during a goal-mouth collision with the Jets' Blake Wheeler.

Eddie Lack took over in goal and made 15 saves.

Tanev scored at 10:23 of the third period. He took a pass in the high slot from Zack Kassian and ripped a shot past goalie Ondrej Pavelec. Brad Richardson opened the scoring for Vancouver on a power play midway through the first period, and Evander Kane tied it on a power play in the second.
