NEW YORK (AP) - Brad Richards snapped a tie in the opening minute of the third period, and the surging New York Rangers handed the Florida Panthers their ninth straight loss with a 4-3 victory on Sunday night.

Richards snapped a shot past goalie Tim Thomas 46 seconds in, and punched the glass in celebration of his first goal in nine games. New York then held on for its third consecutive win and sixth in seven games.

Mats Zuccarello made it 4-2 at 6:16 during the Rangers' two-man power play, off a pass from Richards, and J.T. Miller and Derek Dorsett also scored for New York (9-8), which went over .500 for the first time this season.

Brian Campbell scored his second of the game to cut Florida's deficit to 4-3 with 7:03 left.
