NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Rick Nash snapped a tie with 1:58 to go in regulation Friday, giving the New York Rangers a 3-2 victory over Dallas.

The Stars lost their fifth in a row while the Rangers won for the fifth time in seven contests. The last three Dallas losses came by a combined score of 11-5 during a four-day stretch in the New York metropolitan area.
