Rangers' Lundqvist shuts out Red Wings 3-0 for 300th NHL win, 1 shy of tying club mark

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Henrik Lundqvist earned his 300th NHL victory and 49th career shutout in the New York Rangers' 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

Lundqvist made 30 saves in shutting out the Red Wings for the second time this season, as New York completed a three-game season-series sweep of its Original Six rival. The Swedish goalie is one win shy of tying Mike Richter's franchise record of 301. He caught Rangers great Ed Giacomin for the club mark in shutouts.

Lundqvist was serenaded by the crowd with chants of "Hen-rik, Hen-rik" in the game's final minute.

Brian Boyle scored in the first period and Chris Kreider had two third-period goals for the Rangers, who won their second straight after an 0-2-1 skid and moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division — one point ahead of Philadelphia.

Quote of the Day

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
