Rangers rally, win 1st shootout of season by beating Flames 4-3

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Benoit Pouliot scored in the seventh round of the shootout, and the New York Rangers won for the time on a long homestand by rallying to beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 on Sunday night.

Pouliot scored the fourth goal of the Rangers' first shootout of the season, and beleaguered goalie Henrik Lundqvist stopped Mikael Backlund to give the Rangers the win. New York is 1-3-1 on its team-record, nine-game homestand.

Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin scored to erase the Rangers' early 2-0 deficit, and Chris Kreider made it 3-3 with 7:53 left in regulation as New York improved to 2-15 in games in which it allowed the first goal.

Lundqvist, who stopped 18 shots through regulation, spread his arms and looked up to the ceiling in relief after the final shootout attempt as he ended his and the Rangers' four-game losing streak (0-3-1).

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
