NEW YORK (AP) - Marian Gaborik had four goals and an assist three days after being benched and Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves for his seventh shutout of the season and 31st overall in the New York Rangers' 7-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.
Just a few hours after the Rangers said leading scorer Brandon Dubinsky would be out at least three weeks because of a stress fracture in his left leg, Gaborik picked up the offensive slack.
Gaborik broke out of an eight-game goal drought with two in the first period and two more in the second for his third hat trick of the season. Brian Boyle, Ruslan Fedotenko and Mats Zuccarello also scored. Playing on a line with Gaborik, Artem Anisimov had four assists and Sean Avery added three.
