The Bruins were playing the second of back-to-back afternoon games after hosting the Penguins in a 3-2 loss Saturday. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but postponed because of the lockdown and manhunt for one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers.
Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots for his fourth shutout of the season and the Bruins pulled into a tie with idle Montreal for first place in Northeast Division with 59 points. The Bruins have four games to play, one more than the Canadiens.
The Panthers honoured local law enforcement by wearing Boston Police hats during their pregame skate. Bruins fans once again took over the singing of the national anthem, a practice that started last week in the first game since the deadly explosions at the marathon finish line.
RANGERS 4, DEVILS 1
Callahan provided the lead 34 seconds in, Derek Stepan added a goal in the first period, and Taylor Pyatt snapped a long drought in the second for the eight-place Rangers, who are inching closer to a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.
Callahan made it 4-0 at 5:13 of the third with a power-play goal, flipping a shot over sprawled-out Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, who finished with 18 saves.
Lundqvist was solid, allowing only Andrei Loktionov's goal with 6:30 remaining.
