TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Rick Nash scored a go-ahead goal early in the third period and the New York Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Saturday night.

The Rangers took a 2-1 lead on Nash’s second goal of the season, coming at 3:04 of the third period. He skated in from the right wing boards, eluded Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman and jammed the puck past goalie Mathieu Garon.

Carl Hagelin made it 3-1 with 5:13 to play with his first goal in 20 games. Derek Stepan also scored for New York.

Steven Stamkos scored both goals for the Lightning, who went 4-1 on a five-game homestand. The center, who cut the deficit to 3-2 with 21 seconds remaining, has seven goals and 16 points during a season-opening eight-game point streak.

Rangers goalie Martin Biron made 30 saves in his first start and second appearance of the season. Garon started for the second time this season and had 27 saves.
