WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Ryan Callahan
scored the go-ahead goal off a defenseman's skate late in the game Monday, handing the New York Rangers a 2-1 win over Winnipeg.
With the score tied 1-1, Callahan carried the puck into the right circle and intended to send a pass across the crease to Ruslan Fedotenko.
But the puck instead bounced off the skate of Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian and past Chris Mason into the net with 8:41 remaining in the game.
Fedotenko also scored on a first-period power play.
Martin Biron turned aside 27-of-28 shots for the Rangers, who wrapped up a season-opening, seven-game road trip with a 3-2-2 record.
Nik Antropov scored and Mason stopped 15 shot for Winnipeg.
