PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jason Krog's first goal with the New York Rangers was a big one.
Krog's tie-breaking score 3:49 into the third period came during a wild scramble in front of the net and gave the Rangers a 2-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday, sending the Flyers to their ninth straight loss.
"We just got the puck deep and did two or three cycles," Krog said. "Adam (Hall) threw it across the crease and I was just there banging it and it found its way in. We managed to get an ugly one."
It was only the second goal of the year for Krog, a centre playing in his fourth game for the Rangers since being claimed off waivers from the Atlanta Thrashers on Jan. 12.
"I'm sure our line is not looked upon to score too much," Krog added. "It's always nice to contribute whenever you can."
