Jesper Fast’s first career NHL goal tied the game 2-2in the middle period.

J.T. Miller had his first of the season and Lee Stempniak scored into an empty net rounding out the scoring for New York.

Philadelphia has now been outscored 10-2 in three losses this month to the Rangers.

New York out-shot Philadelphia 15-7 in the first period and 14-4 in the second.

Henrik Lundqvist made 21 saves for the win while Ray Emery stopped 30 shots in the loss.">Follow @dcmahiban
