New York Rangers stop Vancouver Canucks, 1-0, behind Lundqvist’s 30th career shutout

January 14, 2011

The New York Rangers sent a message to the Vancouver Canucks last night, the team with the NHL’s best record, with a 1-0 victory at Madison Square Garden. Vancouver had not lost in regulation in its last 17 games. The Rangers shutdown defense and all-star goalie Henrik Lundqvist improved their team’s record to 18-0-0 when leading after two periods, 26-16-3 overall. Lundqvist’s shutout, his 30th, was his first career win over the Canucks. Recently acquired Wojtek Wolski scored his first goal as a Ranger. Photos by Avi Gerver, ¬©Madison Square Garden, L.P.
