Making only his second career start in the National Hockey League, rookie goaltender Richard Bachman stopped all 34 shots he faced as the Dallas Stars shut out the Rangers 1-0 Tuesday night at The Garden. Bachman, a 24 year-old fourth round pick of the Stars in the 2006 draft, was appearing in only his third NHL game, and was starting in the place of the injured Kari Lehtonen. He was particularly sharp in the third period when he made 13 saves. In the middle period he made an outstanding post-to-post burst to rob Ryan McDonagh's shorthanded opportunity off a 2-on-1 rush up ice. The game was scoreless for 55 minutes until Trevor Daley made a neat side-to-side move in the slot to beat Henrik Lundqvist for his third goal of the season at 15:01 of the third period. Lundqvist finished the night with 27 saves in the losing effort. Facing his former team for the first time since signing with the Rangers last July as a free agent, Brad Richards had a team-high five shots on goal in 23:34 worth of ice-time.
