Rangers outlast B’s, 1-0
by John Bishop, BostonBruins.com

NEW YORK -- In a swift moving goaltending duel that snapped the B's four game preseason winning streak and featured only 22 minutes in penalties, total, for both teams, the New York Rangers outlasted the Boston Bruins, 1-0, at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday evening.

Boston goaltender Tim Thomas was nearly perfect in the loss, which dropped the Bruins to 4-2 in their exhibition schedule, as he stopped 27 of 28 New York shots and played well throughout.

Unfortunately for Bruins fans, last year's Olympic hero and Rangers standout goalie, Henrik Lundqvist, WAS perfect for the home club and the Swedish netminder stopped all 30 of Boston's shots and earned the shutout for the Rangers.

It was Lundqvist's second win in the exhibition season as he saw his first action since a game versus the New Jersey Devils; also a shutout, on September 13th.

The game was scoreless until the second period, when Adam Hall unleashed a backhander from about 10 feet out, off a feed by Martin Straka and Jarkko Immonen, to beat Thomas off a rebound stemming from a 2-on-2, for the only goal of the game at 15:31 of the second stanza.

The win raised the Rangers exhibition record to 4-1 going into the rematch and final exhibition game for both clubs on Saturday in Boston's TD Banknorth Garden; a 4:00 pm face off.

The Bruins had enjoyed a four game winning streak which had led them through three Canadian provinces and two wins apiece versus the Montreal Canadiens and New York Islanders and the loss to the Rangers was Boston's first loss since their preseason opener versus the New Jersey Devils on September 17th.

Boston defenseman Milan Jurcina left the game after the first period as a precautionary measure after he suffered a laceration of the elbow. Coach Dave Lewis reported after the game that Jurcina should be a go for practice and should not miss any time.

Boston will return to practice on Thursday morning at the Ristuccia Memorial Arena in Wilmington, before returning to the Garden on Friday for their premier on ice session of the year in their home building.
