NEW YORK (AP) – Henrik Lundqvist knocked Anze Kopitar’s shootout shot over the net to earn his 200th NHL win and give the Rangers a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
The Kings rallied twice in the third period to stretch their streak with at least one point to a team record-tying 11 games (8-0-3).
Erik Christensen and Mats Zuccarello scored on the Rangers’ first two shootout attempts before Jarret Stoll got a shot past Lundqvist to send the tiebreaker into a third round.
Jonathan Bernier poke-checked the puck off Wojtek Wolski’s stick to keep the Kings alive, but Lundqvist turned aside Wolski to give New York its second straight win after six consecutive losses.
Ryan Callahan had a goal and assist, and Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky both scored in the third for New York.
