Rangers Give Vigneault 500th Win

Rick Nash scored his NHL-best 35th goal early in a four-goal third period, and the New York Rangers beat the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 on Saturday night to give coach Alain Vigneault his 500th career win.

Cam Talbot made 34 saves, including on Tobias Rieder's third-period penalty shot, in the Rangers' third straight win.

Vigneault became the 21st coach in league history to reach the milestone, coming in his second season with the Rangers.

Chris Kreider, Marc Staal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Rangers and Kevin Hayes added a short-handed goal.

Antoine Vermette scored for the Coyotes, while Mike Smith made 28 saves in Arizona's seventh straight home loss.
