Jagr scores 600th goal in Rangers win over Lightning

AP , NEW YORK

Jaromir Jagr scored his 600th NHL goal and Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves to help the New York Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 in the NHL on Sunday.

Jagr, Martin Straka and Michael Nylander each had a goal and two assists for New York, which snapped a two-game losing streak.

Brendan Shanahan added one exciting goal and one assist to extend his point streak to seven games.

A night after a lackluster performance in a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Rangers netted four goals against Tampa Bay goalie Johan Holmqvist, who had won his previous five starts.

The Lightning had won four of five but fell behind 2-0 after two periods and allowed a power-play goal to Shanahan and an even-strength tally by Straka in the third.

Eric Perrin scored with 2:40 left in the game to end Lundqvist's shutout bid.

Ducks 6, Coyotes 4

At Anaheim, California, Chris Kunitz posted his first NHL hat trick, Teemu Selanne had five assists to reach a career high, and Anaheim held on to beat Phoenix.

The last of Kunitz's three goals broke a 4-4 tie and came on a deflection at 9:21 of the third period, off a 45-foot shot by Selanne.

Rob Niedermayer added an empty-net goal with 2.8 seconds left, his second score so far this season.

Andy McDonald had two goals and two assists for the Ducks, who posted a win for the Coyotes for the third time this season and eighth in a row overall.

Ed Jovanovski had a goal and two assists for Phoenix. Mike Zigomanis, Georges Laraque and Yanic Perreault also scored for the Coyotes.
