Elias Pettersson added two assists for Vancouver, which bounced back from a 1-0 loss at New Jersey on Saturday to win for the fifth time in six games.

"I took that onus on myself to be the guy to get the boys going," Horvat said. "I was really upset about the last game, we should have scored more power-play goals and we should have at least gotten a point out of that. ... When we do lose games we're not ones to want to lose three straight, four straight and get on these losing skids. We want to bounce back and have a great game and continue winning."

Jacob Markstrom, playing for the first time since Oct. 12, stopped 38 shots to win his third straight start after losing his first two.

"A little bit of redemption, but our team played amazing, we really did," Beagle said. "Marky stood on his head. It was just a good overall win."

Jesper Fast had a goal and an assist, and Artemi Panarin also scored for New York, which has lost four straight -- including three in four days after playing just three times in the previous 14 days. Henrik Lundqvist finished with 40 saves.

"We should be so eager to get out there," Lundqvist said. "But sometimes it's hard to get going. That desperation should always be there. Especially losing three in a row."

Rangers coach David Quinn shook up his lineup during Friday's 5-2 loss at Washington, moving Chris Kreider to the top line with Panarin and Mika Zibanejad. Pavel Buchnevich was dropped to the second line, and rookie Kaapo Kakko down to the third. Buchnevich ended up on the fourth line during the second period but was back on the second later in the game.

Down 3-1 after 40 minutes, the Rangers came out aggressive in the third and controlled much of the play while outshooting the Canucks 17-6 in the final period.

Panarin got the Rangers to 3-2 as he got a pass from Fast from behind the net, and quickly put it past Markstrom for his fourth at 5:31.

New York had several flurries of chances at the tying goal, pulling Lundqvist for an extra skater with 1:51 to go, but couldn't get another one past Markstrom.

"We've got to play smarter," Zibanejad said. "And it just shows you can't just play for 25, 30 minutes. ... You've got to play all 60 minutes. The whole game is not going to look perfect; it's not going to be all good stuff, but we've got to learn to manage the game a little bit more."

With the Rangers trailing 3-0 after a lackluster first period, Fast got them on the scoreboard late in the second. Standing in front of Markstrom, Fast deflected Jacob Trouba's hard point shot past the goalie for his second.
