Rangers 3, Bruins 0

Ryan Callahan scored for the fourth straight game and Henrik Lundqvist was perfect with a season-high 42 saves for his league-leading seventh shutout as the Blueshirts downed the Bruins, 3-0, at TD Garden. Lundqvist made 18 saves in the third period alone. The victory lifted the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers to a nine-point lead over the Bruins, who have lost four of their last six and leave for a six-game road trip.
