April 3, 2012 at 10:02 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, April 3 (UPI) -- Ryan McDonagh scored to trigger a four-goal first period Tuesday and the New York Rangers clinched the Atlantic Division with a 5-3 win over Philadelphia.

McDonagh and Marian Gaborik each finished with a goal and an assist, while Brian Boyle, Ryan Callahan and Artem Anisimov also scored for the Rangers, who also secured the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Henrik Lundqvist helped the Rangers claim their first division crown since 1994 with 37 saves.

New York also completed a six-game season sweep of the Flyers. The last time they accomplished that was in 1971-72.

Andreas Lilja, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds scored for playoff-bound Philadelphia.

Ilya Bryzgalov allowed five goals on 24 shots in his return from a three-game injury absence.
