Lundqvist shuts out Predators, Rangers win 3-0

NEW YORK (AP) - Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and the New York Rangers stayed atop the NHL standings with a 3-0 victory over Nashville that stopped the Predators' winning streak at five games on Tuesday night.

The Predators, who beat the New York Islanders 3-1 on Monday, have won eight of 10. The Rangers had lost two of three entering Tuesday's game, and still haven't quite broken out of a scoring slump. New York has averaged about two goals in 12 games since Christmas.

John Mitchell scored midway through the second period and defenseman Dan Girardi had a goal in the first.

Ryan Callahan was awarded a goal when he dived to try to knock the puck into the empty net in the final minute, and Martin Erat dived on top of him.
