(Reuters) - The New York Rangers held on for a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday to avenge last week's loss to their divisional rivals.
The Flyers beat the Rangers by the same score on Thursday, but could not find an equalizer in the re-match in New York after Kimmo Timonen's conversion on a power-play in the third period.
Michael Del Zotto scored in the first period then assisted on Ryan Callahan's goal in the second to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead.
The victory was New York's (3-3-0) third in four games following a slow start to the season. Atlantic division rivals Philadelphia (2-5-0) have now dropped two straight.
