New York Rangers Hand Detroit Red Wings Sixth Straight NHL Loss

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- Ryan Callahan’s overtime goal gave the New York Rangers a 2-1 victory against Detroit, building their lead in the standings and handing the Red Wings their sixth straight loss.

The Rangers (46-20-7) have 99 points to lead the National Hockey League’s Eastern Conference with 12 points more than the second-seeded Boston Bruins. New York leads the Atlantic Division by three points over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“I think we’re starting to get our groove back, and we’re starting to play how we want and how we were playing earlier in the year,” Callahan said. “It’s an important time of year, and we’ve got to keep building and keep going.”

Henrik Zetterberg gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead 3 minutes, 36 seconds into the game last night at Madison Square Garden in New York. Brad Richards scored a power-play goal 11 minutes later to tie the game at 1-1.

After scoreless second and third periods, Callahan gave the Rangers the win 2:42 into overtime.

The Red Wings (44-25-5) have 93 points to hold the fourth seed in the Western Conference, seven points behind the St. Louis Blues.
