Lundqvist stars as Rangers win 5-0 against Canadiens

Reuters and AP, NEW YORK

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots for his fourth shutout and Martin St Louis had a goal and assist as the suddenly stingy New York Rangers routed the NHL-leading Montreal Canadiens 5-0 on Sunday night.

Lundqvist, who followed on the heels of backup Cam Talbot’s blanking of Philadelphia on Wednesday, posted his team-record 54th shutout.

Dominic Moore scored his first goal, and Derek Stepan added his second in a dominant middle period for the Rangers.

Carl Hagelin scored at 1:40 of the third and Rick Nash made it 5-0 with his 14th goal with 4:36 left in the second matchup between the teams since New York won the Eastern Conference finals.

DUCK 2, COYOTES 1

The Anaheim Ducks fended off a third-period surge to beat the Arizona Coyotes 2-1.

Kyle Palmieri and Patrick Maroon scored for the Ducks (13-4-5), while defenseman Keith Yandle scored the Coyotes’ lone goal in the third where Arizona (9-11-2) fired off 17 shots.

CANUCKS 4, BLACKHAWKS 1

Jannik Hansen scored three goals and rookie center Bo Horvat collected the first three assists of his career as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-1.

Hansen, who has seven goals this season, has scored in three consecutive games. Derek Dorsett also had two assists.

The win improves Vancouver’s record to 14-6-1.

Chicago’s loss snaps a three-game win streak and leaves them at 12-8-1.

BLUES 4, JETS 2

Ryan Reaves scored the game-winning goal early in the third period as the St Louis Blues (14-6-1) downed the Winnipeg Jets 4-2.

Reaves picked up a rebound off a shot from Steve Ott, spun and fired the puck past Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec at 2:25 of the third period to break a 2-2 tie.

The Jets (10-9-3) suffered their second straight loss on home ice, getting goals from Bryan Little and Jim Slater.
