Brandon Pirri scored twice to help the Rangers beat the Boston Bruins 5-2 on Wednesday night. 
 
Pirri has four goals and two assists in seven games. The left wing signed with the Rangers as a free agent after splitting last season with Florida and Anaheim.
 
Rick Nash, Kevin Hayes and Jimmy Vesey also scored for New York, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots. The Rangers won their third straight game, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to improve to 5-2-0.
 
David Pastrnak and Austin Czarnik scored for Boston. The Bruins have lost three straight to drop to 3-4-0.
 
Zane McIntyre made 26 saves in his first NHL start. He was called up prior to Boston's 5-0 home loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night to back up Malcolm Subban due to injuries to Tuukka Risk and Anton Khudobin.
 
Down 2-0 after the first, the Rangers scored three times in the final 10:44 of the second.
 
The Bruins head to Detroit Saturday night while the Rangers next destination is Carolina Friday.
