Rangers on a roll since being hit by Lightning
If a drubbing at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning was the wake-up call the New York Rangers really needed, they have gotten the message loud and clear.
Since a four-goal home loss to the Lightning last Monday, the Rangers have been suddenly stingy and haven’t allowed a goal in back-to-back wins. Their latest triumph was a 5-0 rout of the NHL-leading Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night.
Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots for his fourth shutout, following backup Cam Talbot’s blanking of Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Lundqvist extended his team record with his 54th career shutout and Dominic Moore scored his first goal.
