NEW YORK, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Jeff Carter scored and logged an assist during a three-goal Philadelphia rally that lifted the Flyers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers Sunday.

Carter scored late in the first period to erase a 1-0 Rangers lead and helped out on Claude Giroux's go-ahead, power-play marker midway through the second for the Eastern Conference-leading Flyers.

Dan Carcillo and Kris Versteeg also found the net and Brian Boucher turned aside 37-of-39 shots for Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia, which downed the Rangers for the fifth straight meeting.

Wojtek Wolski and Derek Stepan scored for the Rangers, who lost second-leading scorer Marian Gaborik after the first period with an undisclosed injury.

Henrik Lundqvist made 20 saves for New York, which holds the seventh playoff spot in the East.
