NEW YORK, N.Y. - After sun reflecting off the ice delayed the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Rangers and pinstriped goalie Henrik Lundqvist beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in snow and cold Sunday.

Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the Rangers used a four-goal second period against Martin Brodeur to take the lead for good.

After Dominic Moore and Marc Staal had goals in the first for the Rangers, Mats Zuccarello scored two straight to put New York ahead for the first time. Carl Hagelin and Nash found the net, too.

Lundqvist, who sported stylish pinstriped pads for the occasion, stumbled through a difficult first but settled down and made 19 saves.

Jaromir Jagr had two assists to excite the large number of New Jersey fans who made the trek to the Bronx for what was nominally a Devils home game.


DETROIT (AP) — Nick Bjugstad scored in a shootout and Tim Thomas denied Detroit three times, lifting the Panthers to a win over the Red Wings after trailing by two goals twice in regulation.

Brad Boyes scored a game-tying, short-handed goal with 3:46 left in the third period a couple minutes after teammate Drew Shore scored.

Detroit's Gustav Nyquist and Daniel Alfredsson scored 1:19 apart midway through the second and Riley Sheahan had a goal late in the second period.

Jonas Gustavsson, filling in for the injured Jimmy Howard, had 33 saves in his third straight start for the Red Wings.

Thomas stopped 26 shots.

Quote of the Day

You could feel it. You could feel that they were going after each other and trying to win the game for their team.
