Buchnevich gets 3; Rangers beat NJ for 3rd time in 5 days

NEW YORK (AP) Pavel Buchnevich gave himself a birthday present and the New York Rangers another much-needed win in their pursuit of the playoffs.

Buchnevich scored his first career hat trick and the streaking Rangers beat the New Jersey Devils 6-3 on Saturday for their third win over their Hudson River rivals in five days.

"Obviously he is a very good player with very big hockey IQ," said teammate Artemi Panarin, who had a goal and three assists. "I want to wish him a happy birthday, especially he scores a hat trick. He played a huge role in this team defensively, penalty killing, offensively. He is a very important member of this team."
