Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist kicked out 36 shots to spark New York to a 3-2 triumph over the visiting Los Angeles Kings Monday night.

It was Lundqvist's third consecutive win. He has allowed four goals -- and has stopped 80 shots -- in those three games. The veteran all-star has improved his win-loss record to 21-12-1. His goals-against average is down to 2.75 after a rough period before his past three games, and his save percentage is .906. You could do worse than have Lundqvist now as your fantasy goalie.

The ice conditions at the Joe Louis Arena were terrible Sunday.

So said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault whose team beat the Red Wings 1-0 in overtime. "I know the ice was the same for both teams, but the quality of the ice today was just horrendous," Vigneault said. "When you can’t put two passes together because the puck is bouncing all over the place, makes it very hard on both players, who have some skill. It makes it hard to put that skill on display. It took five or six minutes of each period for the ice to be horrible. I think that had a lot to do with the show we saw on the ice." Now you know why it was only a 1-0 game.

Mats Zuccarello lifted his point streak to five games thanks to the game winning goal he set up to beat Detroit on Sunday in overtime, 1-0.

Zuccarello stared down Jared Coreau as he bought time for JT Miller to catch up on the wing before making a sweet dish leading to the goal. He now has seven helpers during the streak, giving him 27 overall assists and 37 overall points.

Thanks to the helper he picked up in Sunday's 1-0 overtime win over the Red Wings, rookie Brady Skjei has reached another milestone.

Make it 18 helpers and 20 points for him through 46 games this season. Skjei has quietly put together a remarkably solid rookie campaign.

Henrik Lundqvist picked up his second shutout of the season as the Rangers beat the Red Wings 1-0 in overtime on Sunday.

The King was a perfect 21 for 21, including the two shots asked of him while on special teams. He improves to 20-12-1 on the season and is now up to 61 career shutouts.
Jan 22 - 3:22 PM

Kevin Hayes suffered a lower body injury during the second period of Sunday's matinee with the Red Wings.

Hayes did not factor much on to the score sheet before departing. Consider him day-to-day for now. The Rangers will host LA on Monday and Philadelphia on Wednesday before the All-Star break kicks in on Friday.
Jan 22 - 2:25 PM

Michael Grabner leads the NHL in even strength goals with 20.

Grabner scored shorthanded against the Leafs Thursday for his first non-even strength goal and has 21 on the season. Grabner played for Toronto last season and coach Mike Babcock praised the winger who only scored nine times for him. "He was on his way," Babcock said. "He had so many chances. He was snakebitten, but he got his confidence back. Grabs was a guy we really liked here. He did a real good job for us. We would’ve loved to have kept him, but we felt with the wingers we had coming, one of these young kids wouldn’t have got any ice time." He certainly has benefited the Rangers this season. Grabner is a must start, even if he sees little, if any, power play time.
