NEW YORK (AP) The first winter storm of the season had Anthony Beauvillier excited about facing the New York Islanders' cross-town rival, and he broke out of a season-long scoring slump in a big way.
Beauvillier had three goals and an assist, and the Islanders held off the Rangers 7-5 on Thursday night to keep up their recent mastery in the series.
"I was pretty pumped before the game," the Quebec native said. "It was snowing outside, felt like Christmas. And playing the Rangers is always fun. It feels good to get the win."
