Insider Only Rangers continue winning ways in one goal games

Rangers snap Canucks 17 game unbeaten streak
New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella said earlier today via NHL.com that the Rangers wouldn’t be able to win a 1-0 game against the NHL-best Vancouver Canucks Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
Tortorella was willing to eat those words after the game as the Rangers defeated the Canucks 1-0 behind a 31 save shutout performance from Henrik Lundqvist who earned his 6th shutout of the season and 30th of his career.
With the win, New York improved to 26-16-2, 55pts, moving a season best 10 game over .500 and only three points behind second place Pittsburgh in the Atlantic division.
The Rangers are now a league best 13-3-3 in one goal games.

In the win, Wojtek Wolski scored his first goal as a Ranger, helping the Rangers end the Canucks’ 17-game unbeaten streak in regulation time.
The NHL leading Canucks (28-9-6) hadn’t lost in regulation since Dec. 5, posting a 14-0-3 record prior to tonight’s meeting with the Rangers.
Bruins knock off Flyers
Just days after scoring 4 third period goals against Pittsburgh Monday night, the Bruins topped themselves Thursday night, scoring 5 third period goals and knocking off the East leading Flyers (27-11-5, 59 pts) in thrilling fashion at TD Garden.
Steve Kampfer broke a tie with 1:14 left in Boston’s five-goal third period to help the Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-5 on Thursday night.
In a game that featured five lead changes, the Bruins rallied to beat the Flyers for their third straight victory. Boston is 7-1-3 in the last 11 games and playing very good hockey of late.
Philadelphia led 3-2 after two periods before both teams combined for a seven-goal third period. The Bruins get another matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday afternoon at home as the Bruins will look to go 3-0 this week against the top-2 points leaders in the East.
