Recap: NY Rangers vs. Edmonton

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Viktor Fasth stopped 20 shots to help the Edmonton Oilers to a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Benoit Pouliot each posted a goal and an assist for the Oilers, who have won two straight after dropping four in a row. Teddy Purcell added an empty-net goal in the win.

"Two back-to-back wins is huge for us on the road trip here," said Nugent- Hopkins.

Carl Hagelin scored the only goal of the game for the Rangers, who have lost four of their last five. Henrik Lundqvist allowed two goals on 32 shots in the loss.

"The effort through the game was unacceptable," Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said. "We need to turn this thing around and play some better hockey."

The Oilers took a 1-0 lead just 3:19 into the game, as a quick pass from Pouliot from the right side to the front of the net was tapped in by Nugent- Hopkins.

New York tied the contest with 7:26 to play in the opening stanza, as Hagelin threw a shot on net from the right circle that hit off an Edmonton stick and went in.

The only goal of the second period went to Edmonton, as Nugent-Hopkins skated in down the right wing and pulled up along the boards before sending a short pass to Pouliot, who snapped in a low wrister for his second of the season at 8:29.

New York pulled Lundqvist inside of two minutes to play, but Purcell sealed the victory with his empty-net goal.
