Rangers beat Predators 3-1 on Lafrenière's third-period goal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alexis Lafreniere scored with 9:07 remaining in the third period to lift the New York Rangers over the Nashville Predators 3-1 on Thursday night.

Filip Chytil and Barclay Goodrow also scored and Igor Shesterkin made 28 saves for New York, winners of three straight. Shesterkin has stopped 99 of 102 shots in those three games.

"Gritty, gritty effort tonight," Rangers coach Gerard Gallant said. "Tonight, for me, was the toughest game we played so far this season. Everybody battled for ice, both teams. I thought Nashville was real good, and I thought we competed hard."
