Down four runs in the ninth inning, catcher Brian McCann hit a game-tying three-run home run and shortstop Didi Gregorius hit a walk-off two-run homer to lead the New York Yankees to a six-run rally en route to a 9-7 walk-off win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.

"A win we really had to fight for," manager Joe Girardi said, according to ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews. "They should be excited in there."

The Yankees had lost three straight and trailed by five runs in the eighth inning, but McCann started the comeback by hitting the first of two home runs in the eighth inning, a solo shot that made it 7-3.

Late in the third period last night, Anze Kopitar was credited with a goal that tied the game at three for the Kings.

On the play the Kings had two players in front of Henrik Lundqvist and Alain Vigneault challenged the call on the ice claiming goaltender interference.

After the review, the referees determined that Ryan McDonagh's "actions" caused Tyler Toffoli to come into contact with Henrik Lundqvist before the goal was scored. (NHL.com)
