Nash recorded his first multi-goal game since a hat trick Nov. 21, 2015, at Florida and 63rd overall. It was his 17th two-goal game since joining New York in 2012 and first at home since Feb. 2, 2015. He has five goals in his last four contests.

Pavel Buchnevich also scored a power-play goal and Michael Grabner added an empty-net goal for the Rangers, who also won their fifth straight home game. Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves for New York.

Jesse Puljujarvi scored in his season debut and Connor McDavid scored on the power play for Edmonton, which was unable to win a season-high third straight game after overtime wins against the New York Islanders and New Jersey.

Mike Hoffman registered two power-play goals and Erik Karlsson added two assists as Ottawa swept Colorado in the NHL Global Series.

The Senators staged a two-goal third period rally as Johnny Oduya’s second goal of the season at 7:01 evened the score. Hoffman gave Ottawa the lead with his sixth goal of the season, unassisted on the power play at 13:23 of the third period.

The Avalanche lost their third straight game, receiving goals from Sven Andrighetto, Alexander Kerfoot and Blake Comeau. Jonathan
