Recap: Winnipeg vs. NY Rangers

Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - Antti Miettinen scored the lead goal in the second period and Andrew Ladd netted a late insurance tally, as Winnipeg downed the New York Rangers, 3-1, at MTS Centre.

Nik Antropov lit the lamp in the first period and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 28- of-29 shots for the Jets, who have won four of their last five games.

"I think we're getting some contributions from a lot of the players and I think a lot of the players are doing the right thing," said Winnipeg head coach Claude Noel.

Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves and Ryan Callahan provided the lone offense for the Rangers, who have lost three of four.

Callahan pulled the visitors even with 71 seconds played in the second period, but Miettinen gave the Jets a one-goal lead once more by tipping in a Dustin Byfuglien point shot.

Ladd's one-timer beat a sliding Lundqvist but rang off the crossbar with just over nine minutes played in the third, then the visiting netminder made a nice pad stop on an Evander Kane break-out as the clock ticked down below three minutes remaining.

The Rangers pulled Lundqvist with more than a minute to go, and after Blake Wheeler controlled a loose puck in the neutral zone, he fed to Ladd, who flipped the clincher into an empty net with 38.7 seconds left.

"We had some chances that we didn't capitalize on, they scored a deflection goal to take a lead and we just didn't generate much offense in the third period," said Rangers head coach John Tortorella.

Antropov opened the scoring less than two minutes in, sliding the puck home on the backhand while facing away from the New York net.

Marian Gaborik was awarded a penalty shot at the 11:17 mark after only being lightly hooked from behind by Byfuglien, but Pavelec stood firm in the crease to stop his shot with the right pad.
