Marian Gaborik scored the Rangers lone goal Thursday night on a breakaway in the third period, snapping his seven-game goal drought. He last scored on March 7 against the New York Islanders. His nine goals this season is for second on the team with Ryan Callahan, one behind Rick Nash for the lead.

The winger finished the night with a season-high eight shots on goal, and the most he's had since registering eight on Oct. 15, 2011 against the New York Islanders. 

 

700 Games for Nash

Rick Nash tallied an assist while playing in his 700th career NHL game. The winger has now recorded a point in 12 of his last 16 games, registering eight goals and 10 assists during the stretch.

 

Nash still needs one goal for 300 in his career.

 

MDZ Tallies an Assist

Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto recorded an assist on Gaborik's goal and tied his career-high with six shots on goal in 22:43 of ice time. The last time Del Zotto finished with six shots was March 8 against the Ottawa Senators.

 

The 22-year-old now has three points in his last two games. 

 

Hank Keeps Opponent Under 2 Goals

This season, Lundqvist is 11-4-1 when allowing two goals or fewer.
