Rangers Edge Bruins, 1-0

The “win one, lose one” trend continues.

The Boston Bruins tried to win consecutive games for the first time this season Sunday afternoon in a matinee matchup at Madison Square Garden with the New York Rangers. But, Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had other ideas. Lundqvist led New York to a 1-0 shutout victory over Boston, tallying 29 saves in the process.

Like Saturday’s skate vs. Edmonton, Sunday’s contest remained scoreless for much of the game. The tie was broken by New York’s newest sniper Marion Gaborik, who beat Boston goalie Tim Thomas glove side from the high slot for what turned out to be the lone goal of the game. Thomas, who notched 22 saves, was the hard-luck loser in the afternoon’s defensive battle.

The shutout was Lundqvist’s first of the season and 21st of his flourishing career. Sunday’s win also marked his 150th career victory.

From here, Boston heads west to the Motor City for another Original Six matchup against another struggling team who sat atop the standings a year ago, the Detroit Red Wings.
