New York, NY (Sports Network) - Rick Nash registered the go-ahead and insurance tallies in the third period, as the New York Rangers shook off the absence of a key player to overcome the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-2, at Madison Square Garden.

Ryan Callahan added two early scores for the Rangers, who did not have the services of center Brad Richards after he was injured Sunday night on an illegal hit by Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta, but nonetheless won their sixth straight home game against Philadelphia.

Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves as the Blueshirts have taken three straight overall.

Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek notched power-play scores for the Flyers, who slipped below .500 (11-12-1) after seeing a two-game win streak snapped.

Ilya Bryzgalov stopped just 16 pucks in defeat.
