BOSTON - Jaromir Jagr scored his second goal as a member of the Bruins and Boston ended a four-game winless streak with a 3-0 victory over the Florida Panthers on Sunday.

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.

Rookie Dougie Hamilton also scored for Boston and Brad Marchand picked up his team-leading 18th goal when he backhanded the puck into an empty net with 1:22 remaining.

RANGERS 4, DEVILS 1

NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Callahan scored a goal in the opening minute and another in the third period, and Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves as New York eliminated New Jersey from the playoff race.

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.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
