NEW YORK, N.Y. - Cam Talbot made 31 saves for his first win of the season and fourth career NHL shutout, and the New York Rangers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.
New York, wearing its road white jerseys, beat the Flyers for the ninth straight time at Madison Square Garden in the regular season. Talbot (1-2-1) got the win while subbing for Henrik Lundqvist, who served as his backup.
It was Talbot's first victory since another shutout at Edmonton on March 30 ? a span of six games for Talbot. Kevin Klein scored in the first period, and Rick Nash had a goal in the second.
Steve Mason stopped 32 shots for Philadelphia, which lost its third straight.
