Lundqvist makes 39 saves in Rangers' win vs. Bruins @NHLdotcom

Henrik Lundqvist made 39 saves to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-2 victory against the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

Lundqvist allowed a goal on the Bruins' first shot, a tip-in by Brett Connolly 40 seconds into the game, then stopped 38 consecutive shots before Connolly scored again with 1:57 left. He was at his best in the second period, when he stopped all 19 shots.

The Rangers tied the game 1-1 on Viktor Stalberg's goal at 16:27 of the second period, and J.T. Miller scored less than three minutes later to put New York ahead to stay. Rick Nash had a power-play goal at 5:21 of the third period that turned out to be the game-winner.

The regulation 60 minutes were followed by a 3-on-3 overtime in which neither team scored.

New York finished its preseason schedule with a 4-1-1 record; the Rangers open the regular season Oct. 7 at the Chicago Blackhawks (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

Jonas Gustavsson made 24 saves for Boston (4-2-0), which completes its preseason schedule Friday at the Washington Capitals.
