Hagelin scores 2 goals, Lundqvist solid in Rangers' 5-1 win over Lightning

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Carl Hagelin had two goals and an assist, and Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves in the New York Rangers' 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay that extended the Lightning's losing streak to four games Sunday night.

Lundqvist was sharp throughout and was helped by some early offence. Hagelin scored his first goal just 31 seconds in and then made it 3-0 in the second period. Ryan Callahan added a breakaway goal with 4:47 left in the first, and Arron Asham and Rick Nash scored in the third for the Rangers (6-5), who have won four of six.

On the flipside, the Lightning — who entered with an NHL-best 42 goals this season — have netted only six during their skid. Tampa Bay (6-5) might have been a bit weary following a long bus ride from Boston on Saturday after its game against the Bruins was postponed by the big Northeast snowstorm.

Quote of the Day

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
