Lundqvist made 30 saves in shutting out the Red Wings for the second time this season, as New York completed a three-game season-series sweep of its Original Six rival. The Swedish goalie is one win shy of tying Mike Richter’s franchise record of 301. He caught Rangers great Ed Giacomin for the club mark in shutouts.

Lundqvist was serenaded by the crowd with chants of "Hen-rik, Hen-rik" in the game’s final minute.

Brian Boyle scored in the first period and Chris Kreider had two third-period goals for the Rangers, who won their second straight after an 0-2-1 skid and moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division — one point ahead of Philadelphia.

BRUINS 5, PANTHERS 2

SUNRISE, Fla. • Torey Krug scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Boston Bruins won their season-high fifth straight with a victory over the Florida Panthers.

Chad Johnson made 20 saves, and Chris Kelly, Jarome Iginla, Patrice Bergeron and Andrej Meszaros also scored for Boston. The Bruins are 7-0-3 during a 10-game stretch on the road, their longest such point streak since 2010-11.

The Bruins have taken 14 of 16 from the Panthers, including eight straight by a combined 33-10 score.

Jimmy Hayes scored both goals for Florida, and Roberto Luongo stopped 37 shots.

BLACKHAWKS 2, SABRES 1

BUFFALO, N.Y. • Jonathan Toews scored the go-ahead goal 1:34 into the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks snapped a two-game road skid with a win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Patrick Kane celebrated his trip home to Buffalo by also scoring in helping the Blackhawks beat the Sabres for a fifth consecutive time. Cory Crawford made 20 saves in making his 12 straight start.

By improving to 3-3 since the end of the Olympic break, Chicago (38-13-14) avoided its longest road losing streak since a six-game drought from Feb. 2-14, 2012.

Drew Stafford scored for the league-worst Sabres (19-37-8), who had a three-game home winning streak snapped.

KINGS 4, OILERS 2

EDMONTON, Alberta • Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist as the Los Angeles Kings won their seventh straight with a victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

Alec Martinez and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings, who have their longest winning streak since taking nine in a row from Jan. 21-Feb. 6, 2010.
