MONTREAL (AP) After trailing most of the night, the New York Rangers took over in the third period and showed exactly why they might be the hottest team in the NHL right now.

Ryan Strome scored twice and added an assist as the surging Rangers rallied past the Montreal Canadiens 5-2 on Thursday for their fifth straight victory.

Phillip Di Giuseppe, Adam Fox and Mika Zibanejad also scored for the Rangers (35-24-4), who were down 2-0 late in the second. Alexandar Georgiev made 32 saves and New York pulled into a tie with Carolina, two points behind Columbus for the final Eastern Conference playoff berth.
