Daniel Paille also scored for Boston and Tuukka Rask made 27 saves against the road-weary Canucks, who were coming off 2-0 loss in Detroit the night before.

Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk added assists as Boston won for the sixth time in seven games.

Roberto Luongo stopped 29 shots for Vancouver, which played its second game since coach John Tortorella came back from a 15-day suspension. His return hasn’t halted Vancouver’s slide — the Canucks lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Raphael Diaz pulled Vancouver to 2-1 in the second period, one day after coming over from Montreal in a trade.

RANGERS 5, AVALANCHE 1

NEW YORK • Rangers captain Ryan Callahan shook off trade talk and scored two first-period goals to lead New York past Colorado for its fourth straight win.

With Callahan’s future with the Rangers unsettled just before he heads to the Sochi Olympics, he staked New York to a 2-0 lead with goals 3:19 apart. Defenseman Anton Stralman added his first of the season in the second period, and Derick Brassard and Brad Richards scored in the third — with an assist from Callahan — in the Rangers’ 10th win in 13 games.

Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves for his 297th win, four shy of Mike Richter’s club record.

Gabriel Landeskog, Lundqvist’s teammate with Sweden in the Olympics, scored in the second, and Russian Olympian Semyon Varlamov stopped 38 shots, but the Avalanche had a four-game winning streak snapped.

STARS 3, COYOTES 1

GLENDALE, Ariz. • Antoine Roussel scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period, Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots and Dallas beat Phoenix in a key victory for its playoff hopes.

Shawn Horcoff also scored and Ryan Garbutt added an empty-netter for the Stars, who won their second straight game and moved within one point of Phoenix and two of Vancouver, which holds the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Antoine Vermette scored his eighth goal in nine games and Mike Smith made 37 saves for the sluggish Coyotes.

WILD 2, LIGHTNING 1

ST. PAUL, Minn. • Darcy Kuemper made 34 saves and Jared Spurgeon had two assists in his return from a 14-game injury absence to help Minnesota defeat Tampa Bay.

Nino Niederreiter and Dany Heatley scored for the Wild, who are 6-3-2 in Kuemper’s 11 straight starts — a franchise record for rookie goalies.
