NEW YORK (AP) - Peter Forsberg had a goal and two assists, and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-2 Tuesday night for their first victory of the season.

New York, which won a 13-round shootout in Philadelphia on Saturday, lost for the first time (2-1).

Antero Niittymaki bounced back from the weekend loss and made 25 saves for the Flyers (1-1-1). Marcel Hossa won Saturday's shootout with the only goal in the lengthy tiebreaker.

In the rematch, Simon Gagne tipped Forsberg's right-circle feed under Henrik Lundqvist's pads on a 5-on-3 power play for his third goal of the season at 12:25 of the second period that made it 4-1.

New Rangers forward Brendan Shanahan scored his third of the season - all in New York's two home games - with 29 seconds left in the middle period. He fired in a hard slap shot off a nice feed from Michael Nylander during a power play to close the gap to 4-2.
