New York, NY (Sports Network) - Robert Lang and Henrik Zetterberg scored less than two minutes apart in the third period, as the Detroit Red Wings rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat the New York Rangers, 4-3, at Madison Square Garden. It was Detroit's first visit to the Garden since October 25, 2003.

Jiri Hudler and Pavel Datsyuk also scored for Detroit, which has won four straight games and nine of its last 12. Veteran netminder Dominik Hasek also recovered from a shaky start, surrendering three first-period goals on just seven shots, to finish with 17 saves.

Brendan Shanahan, Michael Nylander and Marcel Hossa tallied first-peri9od goals for the Rangers, who have dropped three in a row. Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves.

Shanahan was facing the Red Wings for the first time since leaving the team last summer to sign with New York as an unrestricted free agent. Overall, he scored 309 goals while leading Detroit to three Stanley Cups in nine seasons. Last season the left winger scored 40 goals, as the Red Wings captured the President's Trophy for the best regular season record.

As expected, Detroit is still a strong team, even without Shanahan or Yzerman.

The team continues to bring in players that step up to the plate and keep it competitive year in a year out. Good win by them, I was thinking they might lose when it was 3-1, but the Rangers fell apart a la... Rangers?

As for New York, I'd say they are out of the playoff picture now, but we'll see what happens.
