Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for his sixth straight victory and the New York Rangers won their fourth consecutive game with a 3-1 win over the host Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.

Lundqvist improved to 18-7-4 in handing the Penguins their third straight loss.

Derek Stepan’s ninth goal of the season at 1:20 of the third period secured the win for the Rangers. Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury came out to play the puck, but fanned on it and gave it right to Marian Gaborik. His shot hit the post but the rebound came right to Stepan, who snapped the puck into the open net.
