Krog scores winner, Rangers win 3-1 to hand Flyers 9th straight loss

Jason Krog's tie-breaking goal 3:49 into the third period gave the New York Rangers a 2-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday, sending the Flyers to their ninth straight loss.
Jaromir Jagr also scored for the Rangers, who had dropped four of their previous five games.
Joni Pitkanen scored for the Flyers, who extended their franchise-record home losing streak to 10 games. They have won a league-low three home games, and have not won at home since Nov. 24 when they beat Columbus, 3-2, in former Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock's debut with the Blue Jackets.
Krog's second goal of the season came during a scramble in front of the net.
New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist made 17 saves for his 20th win.
Philadelphia's Robert Esche, who made his first start in goal since a 6-2 loss at Washington on Jan. 9, had 33 saves. He was especially sharp in the first period when he stopped all 17 Ranger shots and thwarted the Rangers' five power plays.
