Penguins surge to 5-2 win over Rangers

NEW YORK (AP) The surging Pittsburgh Penguins are closing in on the top spot in their division.

Teddy Blueger scored twice, Matt Murray made 33 saves and the Penguins rallied from an early two-goal deficit for a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

"I thought we didn't have a great start," Blueger said. "We know we have the firepower in here to get back in those kinds of games. We didn't get down on ourselves. We kept pushing each other."
