NEW YORK, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Henrik Lundqvist stopped 25-of-27 shots Wednesday, leading the New York Rangers to a 5-2 win over Dallas.

Left wing Sean Avery recorded the second four-point game in his career with one goal and three assists.

Marian Gaborik, Ales Kotalik and Ryan Callahan (empty net) (unassisted) also scored goals, while Michal Rozsival had two assists for the Rangers.

New York, which gave Dallas a 1-0 lead on Brad Richards' 12th goal this season at 2:17 of the first period, won for the third time in four contests and finished a three-game homestand with a 2-0-1 mark.

Dallas also got a goal from Jere Lehtinen at 2:07 of the second.

Net-minder Marty Turco was beaten four times on 24 shots for the Stars, who have lost their last three contests and six straight road games.

Avery's first-period score was the game's lone power-play goal on 12 combined man-advantage chances.
