Mats Zuccarello scored in the second round of the
shootout and Henrik Lundqvist was perfect in the tiebreaker to lift
the New York Rangers over the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Friday night.
Zuccarello, playing in his seventh NHL game, beat Kari Lehtonen
with a nifty hesitation move to help the Rangers improve to 7-2-2
in their last 11. Zuccarello starred again after scoring his first
career goal in overtime to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on
Lundqvist denied Dallas' Jamie Benn, Brad Richards and Mike
Ribeiro in the shootout as the Rangers earned the extra point.
Lundqvist made 28 saves for the Rangers, who got a short-handed
goal from Ruslan Fedotenko and a power-play goal from Artem
Anisimov. Lundqvist earned an assist on Anisimov's goal, the
goalie's second in two games and third this season.
