NEW YORK (AP) The New York Rangers can finally breathe a sigh of relief after holding off the Nashville Predators for just their second win of the season.

Kevin Hayes scored the eventual game-winning goal and added an assist while Jimmy Vesey collected his first two points of the season to help the Rangers snap a five-game skid with a 4-2 win over the Predators on Saturday afternoon.

Chris Kreider added a power-play goal and David Desharnais extended his point streak to four games as the Rangers have now collected points in three straight games.
