The New York Rangers extended two winning streaks Sunday. The Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins were not as fortunate.
Forward Jimmy Vesey scored in the seventh round of the shootout to give the Rangers a 4-3 victory against the Vancouver Canucks, extending their home winning streak to eight games and overall streak to four.
The Rangers (13-9-2) matched the Vegas Golden Knights for longest active home winning streak this season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Golden Knights, who next play at home against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday (10 p.m. ET; SN1, SNE, SNO, SNP, ATTSN-RM, FS-SW, NHL.TV), have won eight in row at T-Mobile Arena, a streak that started Oct. 15.
The Rangers, whose Madison Square Garden streak started with a win against the Arizona Coyotes on Oct. 26, will look to make it nine in a row at home when they play the Florida Panthers on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, MSG, FS-F, NHL.TV).
The Predators entered their game at the Carolina Hurricanes on a four-game winning streak, but were defeated 4-3 in a shootout. The Hurricanes are 6-3-1 in their past 10 games.
The Bruins also were looking to win their fifth game in a row, but Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Strome scored the go-ahead goal 2:07 into the third period for a 4-2 Oilers victory.
